What other great things can we say about oatmeal? How about that it's easy to turn it into delicious GRANOLA? Yay!

|Harvesting Mandarins from Bill's tree|
With some time off for the holidays, it was the perfect time to pick fruit and make jam. Marmalade, specifically. I didn't used to like marmalade. I didn't even think I liked it the first time I made it... but I'm a sucker for trying something new and now homemade marmalade is my preferred jam. It's excellent on a thickly sliced crusty piece of sourdough toast. It also goes well on top of French toast. Mix it with fresh, grated horseradish or ginger (or just plain!) for a glaze for meat or tofu. I assume others will like it as much as I now do, and tend to give it as gifts all year long. Wedding? Marmalade. Birthday? Marmalade. Christmas? Marmalade. Not only is it delicious and easy to make, but it looks so beautifully golden and glimmering in glass jars, with just enough light shining through.
