Where was that from Hawkeye?

I saw some in Criccieth the other day, but thought I'd compare prices before I bought any.

Thanks for the reminder. We phoned our source of seville's yesterday and had a 20kg box appear on the doorstep this morning   I've made dinner for tonight so that I can set up the production line to get going. Our house will smell of oranges in another half hour

Snow has confined me to quarters for 2 days - result is 25 jars of marmalade

I finished off the marmalde this morning 7 jars of it. Orange and Ginger this time, next time who knows. Next weekend will be round 2 and i may well add some brandy to the mix (dont have any whiskey).
Anyone any idea when you put the brandy in?

After the marmalade's reached setting point and come off the heat. Cool a bit and stir.
ClaireK

Great. Thanks for the tip, i'll give that a go next weekend.
