Remember that brady bunch episode where jan was going through middle sister angst? “all i ever hear is… marsha, marsha, marsha!”

I wonder what jam might be going though this month… “all i ever hear is marmalade, marmalade, marmalade!” …as she goes rolling to the back of the larder and throws herself on the shelf, glass first. Yes we did a lotta marmalades this month. it was so great to see so many versions and techniques …and citrus!

and pretty incredible to read all of your posts, so much enthusiasm, so much creativity, …so many citrus! my friends, we are off to one hell of a jam! just look at what we did!:
