Take a deep breath and inhale the zesty and pungent fragrance  of citrus and cranberries! Thank you Kate for the inspiration!

I have just made some Clementine and Cranberry Marmalade

All Simmered together with sugar and brandy in a large pan

And ladled into jars to be stored away or given as presents to long suffering relations!

And delicious on toast for breakfast

Here is the recipe

Cranberry and Clementine Marmalade (soft set)

1 lb Clementines

4 lemons

8 os Cranberries

3 1/2 lbs Preserving Sugar

1/4 pt Whisky (I used Brandy, your choice)

Half the clementines and lemons and squeeze the juice (reserve the pips) Tie the pips and lemon halves in a piece of muslin.  Thinly or thickly slice the clementine rinds removing any pith, put in a preserving pan or large heavy based saucepan, add the squeezed juice the muslin bag and 2 pts of water.

Bring to the boil and simmer gently for one hour or untill the peel is tender, remove the muslin bag and squeeze out the juice.

Add the cranberries and cook for 2 mins until they start to break up add the sugar stirring till dissolved stir in the whisky bring to the boil and boil rapidly for 20-35 mins until setting point is reached.  Leave the mixture to stand for 15 mins ladle into sterilised jars.
