the ingredients ...




january, time for making orange marmalade ...
locally produced oranges (every year I'm offered bags full of oranges, clementines, mandarins, satsumas, tangerines ... there are so many over here and people just give them away to friends and acquaintances), freshly picked lemon from my backyard (smells so nice!) and sugar.
it is being made as I type!

janeiro, altura de fazer marmalade de laranja ...
laranjas produzidas localmente (todos os anos recebo de oferta sacos de laranjas, tangerinas, clementinas, mandarinas ... há tantas por aqui que as pessoas oferecem a amigos e conhecidos), limão acabadinho de apanhar do meu limoeiro (cheira tão bem!) e açúcar.
está a ser feito agora mesmo!

These are peaceful photos. I can just imagine the citrus smell in your home. I can imagine these photos in a cook book: they're so inspiring.

Halved oranges remind me of "A Thousand Splendid Suns"...really fragrant and energizing

It looks so yummy. I wish I could smell the fruits. Have a great weekend!

It sounds like a wonderful yellow time in there. Here everything is very white, though the snow melts a bit today. But tomorrow the weather will be cold again and the snow will be just a bit more concentrated.

Once, my aunt brought oranges just picked from a tree in Greece in her suitcase for me middle of our winter. It was amazing taste, not like the ones in shops.

Happy marmalade making, happy yellow and orange tones!
