So, there are times when I actually follow the recipe. This was one of those times… well, almost.
I enjoy making jam in the summer months when ingredients are fresh, local and plentiful. Blood oranges are neither local nor plentiful here in the northeast. But, when I found a nice looking bunch at the local grocery store, I thought it would be an opportunity to warm the cold winter house with a huge pot of boiling water and have some delicious marmalade to show for my efforts.
I found a recipe in the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving, I usually follow jam recipes exactly, and for the most part I did. An internet search turned up this recipe using some liquid pectin. I had never used liquid pectin, but decided to try the Ball recipe… but with the addition of liquid pectin. Makes sense to me. What could possibly go wrong?
