I share your guilty secret, Beth. I make gallons of marmalade for the family and use Ma-made. It saves s-o-o-o much time. I hate all that peeling and chopping and scraping off of the white pith and tying up the pips and the "veins" in muslin and boiling the peel for ever. Let Hartleys do it for you. And you don't have to fuss about getting a set as the tins have pectin added. Just add sugar and water and boil up.
I do have a bone to pick with Hartleys though. They used to do lemon Ma-made too but discontinued it a few years back. I was warned by an assistant in Morrison's supermarket and I bought up the whole stock. I'm just used the last of my store but have found a different brand in Lakeland.
Incidentally if you follow the instructions I'm sure you don't need to can it as well as the rest of the rigmarole.....Why DO you all can jams and marmalades in America? Do they do it in Canada? Is it because you tend to have hotter summers in the States than we do?
