I am being so silly, because we have three minutes before our jelly is
supposed to be reinverted, and my only thought was "Let's go post about
our jelly!" Guy and I just made citrus jelly. I hope hope hope it turns
out. Yay!

Guy points out, and rightly so, that what's important is that it's jelly
made from his citrus from his very own trees. Meyer lemons and juice
oranges. The stuff is the color of sunshine, and the house smells sunny
and happy, and who has a better life than I do?

Back after it's jelly.

Ohmigod. We just tasted the little bit of jelly that wouldn't fit in the
jars. It's SO good. It tastes like it smells -- like sunshine. So proud
and happy!

Oh, and here's the recipe we used for the jelly.

sJelly.html

We'll let you know how it turns out. [Edit: But we used the inversion
method on the Certa package, which is to say we skipped the
boiling-water bath and just poured the stuff quickly into jars, screwed
on the tops, inverted the jars for 5 minutes, then flipped them back
over. According to Certa, this works for high-acid jellies, but nothing
else.]

Got to Guy's and he says to me, he says, "I have a *plan*."

Dun-dun-DAHHN!

Good plan, love. We went to the coffeeshop and read for a couple of
hours between admiring cute neighborhood toddlers. Then we came home and
I made meatloaf, penne, and asparagus. Then we made citrus jelly. Then
we sat (are sitting) around like married folk, listening to Crowded
House and working on our computers (he's organizing his comics,
something he's wanted to do for a while). I'm taking more oranges and
lemons home so I can make more jelly. It will make good gifts, and
Charlotte (who has a habit of bringing us lemony goodness) is first in
line, if she wishes.

Good, good day. Went fast.

Sounds like a great day! Also, a very tasty day!

I'm thinking of using blood oranges for the next batch. Got some sweet
ones relatively cheaply yesterday (though not as cheaply as plucking
them off Guy's tree, for sure).
