Green Gym Marmalade

A small group of green Gym ladies met in Ursula's kitchen on 8th and 15th February to make "Green Gym Seville Orange Marmalade".  We have been doing this for the past few years and selling it to raise funds for Green Gym.

We spent the morning shredding the peel by hand and boiling it in two Maslin pans. By midday it was time to add the sugar and take turns to stir until the marmalade reached setting point. By early afternoon it was ready to pour into jars. 

Altogether, over the two sessions, we made 60 jars, each decorated with our own attractive label. The marmalade will be sold at the very reasonable price of £2 per jar.
