Marmalade and more..........

Last weekend I had the most wonderful time in the kitchen!!  As you can see above I picked from the vegetable garden spinach, spring onions and chinese cabbage.  These were turned into some very yummy spring rolls and also spinach and feta triangles. 

I was also able to pick the very large harvest of five oranges from our tree.  They are never very sweet so it was the exact measurement for a batch of marmalade.  I am so pleased with how it turned out.  It of course looks wonderful in some recycled Bon Maman jam jars.  I got seven jars altogether. 

Unfortunately, this weekend hasn't been as productive in the kitchen as I have had a large amount of laundry to wade through due to a damp and drizzly few days this week. 

Off to raid the freezer now for some Spring Rolls and Spinach & Feta Triangles for our dinner tonight.
