I made grapefruit marmalade. I juiced a lot of grapefruits.
I boiled the rinds in water for about a half hour then added the grapefruit juice. Then I added sugar and boiled it until it reached 220 degrees on a candy thermometer.
They look like gems in the sun.
I like it so much that I made some from clementines too! And then I stuck to everything that I touched for the rest of the day.
This is what the back yard looks like on the first day of February.
This was the moon this morning.
And this was the moon just before sunrise.
And this was Teddy at 5:00 am this morning.
And this was Teddy while I was making breakfast.
Praying that I will drop something.
I am doing a giveaway with Mrs. B on her blog. She is doing retro February and will be sharing recipes and giveaways and more. I am putting together a bunch of retro kitchen tools and assorted retro items. Here are some hand crocheted dish cloths, a bakelite cake server, an old vegetable peeler and some green handled kitchen tools.
Some old wooden spoons.
Two cute creamers and a small white bowl.
Some retro candy.
Pressed glass candlesticks and a relish dish.
A vintage chrome bun warmer.
And a cookbook with old farm stand recipes. If you are interested in these, visit Mrs. B at her blog and enter. I think these will be listed on Wednesday. Visit her at the Pagan Soccer Mom blog.
