Put the lime in the coconut and drink 'em both together
Put the lime in the coconut and then you'll feel better
Put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up
You put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up
You put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up

just curious.
As I understand it, marmalade is made with any type of citrus using the flesh and the peel.

I'd say marmalade is a specific type of preserve.

Preserves are made with bigger pieces of fruit.

Jams tend to have smaller fruit solids.

Jellys contain no solids, just the jelled juice.

We've been making this 100% whole wheat bread for about 10 years in our Zojiruchi bread machine. I have the exact ingredients memorized but can't tell you a thing about baking times or temperatures but I'm sure this can be done by hand using a loaf pan. We grind our own flour from red winter wheat with a flour mill which gives an incredible fresh result. Because it has no preservatives, it dries out quickly. So, we then make what I consider the world's best French toast with it. When the loaf gets too small to do much with my wife make fantastic salad croutons with the rest.

1 1/3 cups warm water
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup raw clover honey
4 level cups flour
2 tsp of salt
1 tbsp dry yeast
1 egg

In a large bowl, combine and mix well with a whisk the water, oil, honey, egg, salt, and yeast until it is all dissolved. Add flour cup-by-cup until it can be handled and kneaded. Knead for about 5+ mins and set back into the large bowl which has been cleaned and slightly oiled. Let rise, covered, for about 1-2 hours. It doesn't have to double but should significantly increase in volume. Knead down again and shape into a log and put into a LARGE bread pan. (this makes a BIG loaf of bread) Let rise until almost doubled. Put in 350 degree oven anywhere from 30 to 35 mins. Caution! If your digestive system is not used to this much fiber it would be a good idea to hang around home until you find out how this bread affects your alimentary canal, if you know what I mean.

PS-I cannot say enough about the performance of my Zojirushi bread machine which I have had for over 10 years. Fantastic performance and durability.

I agree, nasty stuff. We had a jar of marmalade in the pantry for years. Neither one of us likes the stuff and neither one of us knew how it got there. We must have thrown it out. It seems to be gone.

The bitter marmalade is made with Seville oranges I do believe.
That's the stuff that is intentionally bitter. Every marmalade I have ever tasted was either bitter or a bit bitter and far too sweet, in an attempt to cover up the bitter. Some of us taste bitter a lot more than other people.

On our trip to England, all of the B & B's featured lime marmalade for their famous breakfasts. That stuff was the BEST marmalade I have ever tasted.

Same here, bucky. I bought orange marmalade to use in a recipe - never had it growing up - and it's practically inedible for me. Now, strawberry preserves - oh, yum!

Orange marmalade and cream cheese spread on whole wheat bread makes a nice simple tea sandwich.
