Limes are right in season now, and they’re super cheap. Here’s an excellent use for this flavorsome fruit:
6 cups water
7 cups white sugar
Cut off the very ends of the limes and slice them as thinly as possible. Then quarter them.
Put the limes and water in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil. Simmer for at least 1 hour.
Next, add the sugar and bring to a boil again, simmering for another 30 mins.
Skim the foam off the top of the marmalade and pour it into sterilized jars.
Summer serving suggestions:
Add 2 teaspoons of lime marmalade to a cup of boiling water, add a tea bag and some ices blocks and you have lime iced tea.
Add a dollop of lime marmalade to your morning yoghurt
- 6 cups water
- 2 tbsp black loose leaf tea
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 large lemon
- 1 large lime + more for garnish
- 1 can club soda (unflavoured sparkling water)
- Ice cubes
- In a medium pot, bring water to a boil. Turn off heat, add tea leaves, stir and let steep while cooling down completely or until lukewarm.
- Transfer tea to a large pitcher by laddling it through a mesh strainer, discard the tea leaves. Add maple syrup, squeeze lemon and lime juice, add the peels to the pitcher, stir with a long wooden spoon and let tea sit for 10 minutes. Discard the citrus skins otherwise iced tea will be bitter tasting.
- Now you can store your iced tea covered with plastic wrap or lid in a fridge for quite a few days. Right before serving add ice and a can of club soda to a pitcher, stir and enjoy the best sparkling healthy iced tea (garnish with thin lime slices if desired). Tea tastes amazing without club soda too, adjust sweetness to taste.

Digital Technology in Educational Settings
A workshop for educators based in Hanoi – men & women welcome to attend
Wednesday 8 May 2019
5:30pm – 8:00pm
The Eastern & Oriental Tea House & Coffee Parlour
26 Quang An St, Tay Ho, Hanoi Vietnam(View on google maps)
Digital technologies are often presented as solutions that can simply be transported from one context to another that solve problems and enhance student outcomes. In this presentation Dr Michael Phillips will argue that such ‘silicon bullet’ models inevitably miss their target. In contrast, Michael will introduce technological, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) as a way of understanding the ways expert teachers use digital technologies. Furthermore, Michael will provide insights into the ways in which individual schools and teachers can enhance powerful technology practices including Augmented Reality.
About the presenter
Dr Michael Phillips is an internationally recognised researcher and author who explores the challenging problem of teachers’ powerful integration of digital technologies. In particular, Michael focuses on the ways in which expert teachers develop understandings of the most effective uses of digital technologies in particular contexts.
Additional workshop: Benefits of double degrees in the age of multidisciplinary knowledge
After the workshop, you will also have the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion with Monash University representatives from the faculties of Arts, Education, Information Technology and Science about the benefits of studying a double degree.
