First of the Year birding and more marmalade!
The next order of business would be getting my Texas Rio Red Grapefruit ready for preserving for some grapefruit, jalapeno pepper marmalade!
The overnight soak to help off set some of the bitterness of the rind.
And of course I had to sample it to make sure it wasn't poison!
And the after. I have to say it came out delicious (picture a fresh grapefruit you eat with nothing but a spoon and a bit of sugar! Going forward I would have added another pepper though as there wasn't half as much heat as I wanted but it's yummy none the less!
Anyway, it was a great way to spend the weekend and for the 1st time in a while I actually feel recharged which is much needed after the holidays and all. Looking forward to the warmer temps this week and getting some more FOY birds if I can even during the work week as it isn't that hard this time of the year and can get many just driving in your car!
Take care all.
