Now don’t get me wrong. I enjoy cooking and love planning and preparing meals but it occurred to me this morning how it really is a never-ending cycle.
The citrus trees are producing prolifically at this time of the year so yesterday I juiced grapefruit, oranges and limes as well as preparing some grapefruit ready for marmalade.
Today I am making marmalade using this recipe from Annabel Langbein.
I am very happy with the result. Lovely colour and consistency. This is the excess that did not quite fit in the jar.
The finished product ready to go in the pantry. It should be enough for the whole year.
The other job is to make some more gluten free pizza bases for the freezer. The recipe I use makes 6 bases.
On the other side of the ledger, I dived into the freezer and retrieved some vegetable curry for lunch. There are also portions of cooked rice frozen so lunch is ready to go. Dinner will be equally as easy with cauliflower soup and cheese scones all from the freezer.
As an aside, all of this was prepared with zero waste and no single use plastics.
