Sweet Treats

Sue has been busy in bulk.

Friends and neighbours gave Sue some of their crop of Oranges, Lemons and Sue's long term friends brother passed on some of his Cumquat crop 3.5kg.

In a park near by council had planted a Lilli Pilli which has bared fruit also our two grandsons Christian and Brodie help Nana pick about 4kg.

Sue made 11 jars of Lilli Pilli jam which has been already seen me enjoy some of that for breakfast on my toast.

There were 14 jars of Cumquat Marmalade which used only half the 3.5kg of fruit.

Thats when Sue found she only had a few jars left to use, she had run out so has put a call out to any who can help supply metal sealed lidded jars, the type used on jams etc.

The Oranges were used and made just a small amount of Marmalade which was handed back to those who supplied the fruit and a couple of others.

Some of the Lemons have been preserved in another form Sue uses that to add to cooking and cakes.
