Mutley, that is one of the funniest comments that I have ever read on this forum! Big_Laugh Big_Laugh

It reminds me of the old tale about an interview with a millionaire who made a fortune as a street market trader.

"What profit margin do you expect?" asked the interviewer.

"5%", was the response.

"Really? How did you build up your fortune with just a 5% margin?"

"Real easy, like. I buy em for £1 and sell em for £5".

Sorry

I've always used apples, peel, cores  as a source of natural pectin but never tried the lemon peel idea - thanks for the tip.

Danny - where's the bad joke moderator when you need them Wink

Digger, I get hauled over the coals by our resident Moderator (no names shall be mentioned!) for mere spelling mistakes. Bad jokes enable her to deploy her electric cattle prodder Big_Laugh

Hi all - I'm still here wondering what to do with my rhubarb - it'll soon be ready to pick.

Just a thought about the lemon peel (getting back on track) won't it affect the flavour? Apples tend to be more bland but still have the pectin.

It's always good when somebody pulls a topic back on track. Thanks, Digger.

And it's also enjoyable to have a bit of banter (and I am one of the worst culprits). Confused

But Pam's original idea of using lemon peel to provide pectin is really good. We toss probably 3 or 4 lemon shells / skins every week and that is a lorra pectin. We must start tossing them in the freezer.

I've come a bit late to this! I'd like to ask Pam - do you store the lemon stock, or reduce it before storing or what? I have been saving most of my used lemon shells and add them to marmalade but this sounds an excellent idea.

I've also made a note about the half and half jams you mentioned. Another fab idea. Anything to get the jam to set easily is good!
