O range, O range


There is a huge distance ... between this sculpture of oranges and my home-cooked orange marmelade, but still thoughts doesn't have any limits ... or do they?

Today, I took down the Clove spiced Christmas Oranges and made marmelade to go with the cheese, sweet and lovely, and with a hint of the spices of Christmas left in it.

While doing it my thoughts took its own journey to the Orange Festival in Ivrea, Italy, where I have had much fun through out the years ;-) and further to USA where my Bible was "Betty Crockers", over-there I made lots of jam and chutney, o memories,o memories .... *sigh*

Wonder if people from Sweden are allowed to visit USA, this days, I read so many blogs that express hate against us grown up with social democratic and green values ....

Life is a silent jam, fruity with touches of bitterness and passion.

Lovely post Anna dear...I love home-made marmalade and jams.
For the most part I feel there are sweet people in the world, people with passion and a hope for green values. xo ♡

Jam and memories...
I can never forget the cloudberry jam on pancakes that I enjoyed in a Sami tent, on my way to climb the mountain of Kebnekaise many years ago. Lovely.

Olá ANNA LYS ...
So you are a home made marmalade fan? And "chef" too I bet 'cause I can hardly imagine ANNA LYS not doing the best of best!

As for the photo, even considering that the festival is in southern France I guess I would rather catch some cold but be able to have some toast with ANNA LYS marmalade!

Hope 2010 is a great year for u!
