Yesterday I was cooking up some lime marmalade (see my previous article on marmalade) which filled the house with an awesome smell – slowly simmering limes, yum yum!
Once I had added the sugar and the marmalade got to almost the right thickness, I did a quick sample. It tasted awesome. I decided to run it past the resident 17 month old. His eyes locked on the spoon and he came running towards me already “nomming” the air.
Three spoonfuls of lime marmalade later, I gave him half a bagel with a liberal quantity of marmalade on it.
Making a 17 month old child happy is as good a reason as any to make it yourself 🙂
