Totally yummy

Good morning the weeks Challenge at Totally Gorjuss is Yummy! Oh the possibilities! I love to craft and as a lot of you know I LOVE Cooking and baking too!  

I have been having another go at making marmalade and this time its been successful…. Last year it did not set properly and I had to add some arrowroot which made it to firm! but this time…. 

Cooking the marmalade so it reduces

Sterilizing the jars 
Full and ready for lids 

Ohhhh just love the colour and you can see the shred in this one too! 

This is the time of year for lovely Seville oranges, and so as the challenge is yummy I thought I would decorate the yummy Marmalade Jar.
Had fun with this one although it took far longer than I wanted it to as my mojo stayed at the show :(

Oh the rest look plain now! will have to do those too!

And the lid. 

If I had known it was the marmalade Festival sooner (its this weekend) I could of entered, Never mind next year maybe?
