Ma made thick cut marmalade kit has been discontinued!
I have a tin of the lemon marmalade at the back of the cupboard, which is lucky because it will soon be discontinued! So if you see some, get it whilst you can.
Today, I finally got round to making the marmalade from the kit that Smallholderwannabee gave me in the summer holiday. I have another kit in the back of the cupboard too. The marmalade is just delicious. I make sure it sets by adding two bags of sugar, which is 200g more than needed and I get seven jars from this. Ma made is £1.59 in Tescos and sugar is 67p a bag in Lidl, so I stocked up when it was cheap and I have a good stash of sugar for preserving.
I’m suprised that more of the Ma made isn’t being sold as in hard times people make more themselves. I made 7 large jars for 41p each and I think it rivals Tiptree preserves which cost almost £2 a jar. Thanks again to Jo for the gift and boo hiss to Hartleys for discontinuing the thick cut and the soon to be cut lemon Ma made!
