By | English | No Comments

Limes are right in season now, and they’re super cheap. Here’s an excellent use for this flavorsome fruit:

Lime Marmalade

 

Ingredients:

1kg limes

6 cups water

7 cups white sugar

 

Method:

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
