I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Orange, Lemon and Green Tomato Marmalade

Running out of ways to use your green tomatoes up? Well then this delicious marmalade recipe is just what you're looking for!

4 lbs green tomatoes, diced about 9 cups
2 oranges
1 lemon
1 cup water
5 cups sugar
1" fresh ginger, minced

Using a vegetable peeler remove the top layer of rind from the oranges and lemon and cut into thin strips. Place the strips in a saucepan with 1 cup of water and boil for 5 minutes, then drain.

Remove the white pith from the fruit and cut into pieces also removing the membrane from each segment.

Cut the tomatoes into small pieces (the size you want to find in your marmalade) removing any blemishes.

In a large pot combine the citrus rind, orange and lemon pieces, green tomatoes, sugar and ginger. 

Bring to a boil, then keep on boiling uncovered until the marmalade reaches a temperature of 121°F or passes the cold plate test. That is when you take a spoonful of jam and sit it on a plate that has been in the freezer. Let it sit for 30 seconds then push it with your finger. If it wrinkles it is at the setting point.

Pour into sterilized jars and seal. Then process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.

Any jars who's lid has not sealed can be re-processed using a new lid or simply kept in the refrigerator. 

This recipe made 8 - 4 oz (125 ml) jars
