I have a whole bunch of sevil oranges in my freezer, that desparately need using up. I need the freezer space. I also have a fruit bowl full of citrus that is't going anywhere. I think I may bite the bullet, and defrost them to do later on in the week.
No motivation really though, as I have all the B&B marmalade already that will last well into next year, and I made that last year.

Me neither, although the fruity smell coming from the kitchen at the moment is wonderful.

Finished ours last night - just cleaned the drips off the jars today. I use Cab's method and split it over several days which fits easier in to my hectic life. Kill the oranges one night. Cut the next and boil up the pips pith and juice. Strain over the shredded peel overnight/several nights, then finish off. I left out some peel from some of the oranges this time, and added in some extra lime juice, and generally guessed quantities, and it's lush!! Often there is too much peel and not enough marmalade but not so this time. And it used up the limes going off in the bottom of the fridge....
