Right now we are harvesting citrus. A little later this year than last. Page Mandarins (my favorites!), satsumas, Cara Cara oranges (they are just about ready), Pomelos (just in time for Chinese New Years), blood oranges, Meyer lemons. A marmalade dream! This year I am planning some new combinations: Blood Orange & Pomelo Marmalade, Spiced Page Mandarins, candied Pomelo peels and, a real experiment, Wild Bitter Orange Marmalade - made with the wild oranges from the pollinators. John knows the name but he's not here right now.
It's raining at the moment and has been all night. A little too warm for this time of year but Cindy Lashbrook told me that we have had enough chill hours. I hope so.
