Aren’t these the cutest little jars you’ve ever seen? The first one came from my gramma. She gave it to me at the family reunion this summer, and I love its shape and pattern. The second is an adorable “elite” jar from Ball.
And that gorgeous rosy stuff inside? Blood orange marmalade. We fell in love with the blood orange juice and jam served at breakfast nearly every morning while in Italy. I wasn’t on the ball enough to make some marmalade last year, but I made sure to fit it in this year. It was totally worth the effort.
I now have three 1/2 pint jars full of beautiful blood orange marmalade, sweet with a punch of grapefruit-like sour and plenty of chewy candied orange peel, plus a nearly full 1/2 pint jar that wasn’t full enough to process and seal. Ah well…guess it means well have to eat lots in the next few weeks!
You can find the recipe I used at Food in Jars.
