Spiced Tangerine Marmalade


I had forgotten to post my homemade gifting project that was a big hit. In my quest to find uses for the abundance of tangerines I have been getting from my friends tree, I decided to make Spiced Tangerine Marmalade. I used a traditional recipe and added Cinnamon, Nutmeg and ground Cloves to the mixture as it cooked. Now I understand why your don't see this type of jam made very often. Getting the seeds out of the Tangerines was a hugely time consuming job, taking a long time. However, the end results were delicious, and gave the whole house a wonderful smell as it simmered.
I am off today with another big bag of Tangerines at hand, I think I will make some more for my grandson PBJs this coming year.
