If I could choose one thing to successfully grow I would have a lime tree.
A happy one that just insisted on giving and giving with lime after lime.
Yes, that’s what I’d have. No lime tree here, but I do have the occasional access to a short stumpy happy lime tree that gives up plump juicy limes just begging to be picked. Actually the limes didn’t have a choice, plucked from their leafy foliage, and slung into a box rather unceremoniously. I had marmalade on my mind as my stocks were low after last years batch of Cumquat and Lime Marmalade and I needed my citrus fix.
Lime and Orange Marmalade
limes thinly sliced
oranges peeled (I only used the flesh, not the skin)
chopped fruit in a bowl, (I used half orange, half lime) water just over the top, and soaked over night
weigh it all, and equal amount in sugar
cooked up, until marmalade passes the saucer test.
