I agree about the peel -- the thicker the better. And the Wrecksit -- too thick to measure.

While I'm here -- Marmite and cottage cheese on a water biscuit is even better.

You know, I don't think I've seen any variety in American grocery stores other than orange.  My wife is the only person I've ever seen purchase it as well.  (She's not English, but her mum is, so she has a lot of weird English habits... drinking tea, putting marmalade on toasted bread, calling the T.V. a 'tellie.'  Stuff like that.)

Then again, I suppose I'm not one to talk... I always pick up lingonberry jam whenever we stop by Ikea.

There's also marmalade -- usually orange -- laced with Scotch whisky. We're not as dim as you think.



Also marmalade with ginger added sometimes.

(You should be saying 'British habits'. For instance, some of the best marmalade comes from Dundee, which is in Scotland, not England.)

Fine then.  She also says things that are cool are 'lovely' and other such things Americans just don't do.

Clearly a refined and civilised lady.

They were talking about polymaths on the radio just now. Benjamin Franklin was mentioned more than once. There aren't any polymath politicians nowadays. Unimaths at best, and Trump isn't even that. (Not to mention our own rabble.)

I've bought my oranges and must now find the time to make the marmalade.  I use a very simple recipe, no muslin bags required.

If any recipe involves muslin bags I ignore the bags bit. Never failed yet. I dare say it was work created for the novice lower kitchen maid / plongeuse.

The lovely and talented Ms. Annie has made me blood orange marmalade. 
It is now stored on the cupboard shelf reserved for jams, chutneys and preserves that are "too good for guests".

Last week I gave away the very last jar of my famous Damson Jam, to an ailing old friend who loves damsons. That's just the kinda guy I am.

It shall be as you desire, m'lady. At some point I/we will be sure to be traversing Drenthe, no doubt, and will drop off the goods at Vesting Rosie.

My apologies, but I have no home-made lemon curd.

Oh. and a couple of cherry fruitcakes please, if you can be bothered.

No problem with the lemon curd, I can make that myself.

Is the secret ingredient leeks by any chance?  If so, please cross the border to purchase.

No. Stop worrying. You'll like it. (It's the daffodil pollen that makes it so good. That and the dragon-fired ovens. And the laver.)
