a good dose!!!
Vitamin C anyone?
We have so many oranges at home...my parents friends grow them at their farm so Ive just received a whole bag, my in-laws have a mandarin tree and their neighbour a grapefruit tree so lots of citrus fruit to go around....isnt it wonderful how nature provides such a good dose of Vitamin C in these fruits just at the right time of the year...chilly Winter
my boys are getting over the flu but Ive been so busy at work with year end financials that I can feel a cold coming on!
On Sunday my mother in law was sitting in the warm winter sun threading grapefruit skins into tight rolls....what for, you ask?
Fruit preserves or spoon sweets as we call them....these skins will be cooked in a thick sweet syrup for hours until they are soft, then preserved in sterelized jars - perfect for the warmer months...usually served with a glass of ice cold water as they are so sweet!
Other fruits that are popular to preserve are Watermelon rind, figs, grapes...my favourite are small eggplants...yum!
