My First Try

I'm trying my hand at preserving today. I'm making my first batch of marmalade! I got a new (to me) kitchen scale this morning at the Cambridge Antique Market after two weeks of looking online and reading reviews I finally settled on an old school mechanical scale. It tares and weighs up to 25 pounds in one ounce increments!

My first marmalade is a 'Strawberry- Blood Orange Marmalade with Rosemary.' It will take two days to make and will be best if eaten within a year!

Check back tomorrow for finished product--- I hope!
