I Could Sit Down and Eat a Whole Jar


I’m in love with orange marmalade! The slivers of peel are so sweet, like candy. There’s a recipe for orange-lemon marmalade (in the Ball book) that I want to try next. It’s just like the orange marmalade recipe only you use half lemons and lemon peels. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?!

    Still not a marmalade fan, but the lemon mix sounds wonderful – you can send me a couple of jars…….

    This picture looks so good! I am ready for a midnight snack! What do you drink with this?

    Sounds like another recipe that I am going to have to try. That picture says it all. Yummy.

  4. 2-3

    Yes, yes it sounds very yummy and wonderful!

    oh yumm..I could just pull that toast right off the screen.. :fairy:

    I would print off that picture, but I’m sure the paper version wouldn’t taste nearly as good. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just reach into your screen and grab that scrumptious slice of toast??

    This really looks soooooo good.
    I can not wait to make a batch of Marmalade!

    I wasn’t a fan of orange marmalade when I was a kid but that was a few years ago. I might have to try making some to see if I like it better now!
    By the way, I saw something interesting on another blog (can’t remember the name…I was just surfing) about how to use cake that you trim off the top of layers to make them flat. Also works for cake that stuck to the pan or trimmed off when making other cakes or cake that was just too dry. You make Cake Balls! Take your leftover cake, add some frosting and moosh it all up with your fingers to distribute your frosting then shape into quarter or half dollar size balls. Place on a baking pan and put in the fridge for several hours or overnight. Melt 3-4 ounces chocolate…white, dark..whatedver you like. With a spoon, dip each cake ball in the melted chocolate and place on waxed paper to set up. If you want, add sprinkles while the melted chocolate is still soft. They are really pretty and I bet they taste wonderful. You can use any flavor cake you want, any frosting you want and any color and flavor coating chocolate.
    I haven’t tried this yet but you can bet I will!

    What a picture! I am so craving orange marmalade on toast right now! The snow is really pretty here this morning and the birds are very busy :snuggle:

    The next time you make banana nut bread, add some marmalade instead of part of the sugar…….Man it is a whole new taste delight.

    That photo made that old Campbell’s soup jingle come to mind. Some of you might be barely old enough to remember it: Mmmm Mmmm Good! That’s what Campbell soup is – Mmmm Mmmm Good! Only this time, it is Suzanne’s marmalade on Grandmother bread toast, or not toasted, either way, it is Mmmm Mmmm Good!.

  12. 2-3

    YES! If you don’t put that recipe on here then I REALLY need to win a BBB LOL!!! :hungry: :hungry2:

  13. 2-3

    I would atempt to lick the computer screen, but I’m sure the flavor would be lost in translation!

  14. 2-4

    Yes the half and half combo of lemon and orange sounds outstanding.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
