making golden spanish sunshine

saturday our lovely teacher diana taught shashtin and jenifer and i mmm..marmalade makin' using a giant box of seville oranges from the farmer's market. below are photos taken by shash of the process & here are jen's polas and nicely jotted down recipe. this recipe (and 20 lbs of oranges!) are not for the weary... it took us 12 hours from market to mouth ;) granted we took some tea, sandwich and chocolate breaks! it was well worth it though--i've been enjoying it every morning since and it brings the golden sun during our rain. thank you ladies!

What's that rag looking thing in the pot? The marmalade looks delicious. What a nice thing to do and enjoy! homie, nice.

the rag is a homemade cheese cloth for the seeds/pips and pith!

This brings back memories of sitting in my grandmother's kitchen when she used to make jams and preserves. A great little photo narrative here too! Thanks for sharing!
