Marmalade 2017, by Nic Dempsey

By Nic Dempsey. Although I put it down as a February goal, I’ve actually started the marmalade making already. On Saturday, I bought 3 kg of seville oranges (notice they are organic Ave Maria Seville Oranges). Which is three batches, which should last the year.

We acquired some new toys recently… a foosball table, a ping pong table and a dart board.  And this means that our place has become the new “hang-out” for the boys in the neighborhood (and also the men who want to come over in the evening, smoke cigars & play boy games).  What does this have to do with kumquats?  Well, nothing at all, really.  But we did host a manly sort of Happy Hour last week, where we broke in all of the new toys and shared appetizers with friends.  One of my friends brought me the most beautiful basket of kumquats from...
