This post was supposed to be different. As I was making my blood orange marmalade over the weekend I was snapping pictures of the process, envisioning the beautiful rose colored jars full of marmalade lined up in a quaint little picture, and so excited to brag about how wonderful and delicious my creation was.
Nope, big fail.
This was my first time making a jam without pectin, and even though I followed the recipe closely, I somehow managed to overcook it so much that it was not only the color of root beer, but after canned and cooled was as hard as a rock. Grumble, grumble.
Well, at least I got some nice pictures…?
