I've been trying to think of things to make for Christmas gifts.
Last year I made Christmas chutney, knitted hot water bottle covers, made crystalised ginger chocs.
So this year, I wanted to make something really different.
I found this really simple recipe by Jamie Oliver, so easy to do, just don't read your emails whilst cooking it as it can scramble the eggs (I got a few white lumps... ughh).
6 x Clementines
2 x Lemons
4 x eggs (well beaten)
2 x yolks
350gr Caster Sugar
100gr Unsalted Butter (diced)
In a large saucepan put the zest & juice of the fruit, eggs, & sugar.
Place on a very low heat and then add the butter.
Stir constantly, otherwise it may scramble.
Keep scraping the edges and sides to prevent scrambling.
Once the liquid thickens and coats the back of the wooden spoon.
Pour into sterlised jars.
Use within a month.
This recipe made only 3 jars... I am going to double up the quantities next time.
Tastes delicious, Charlie can't get enough of it.
