Thank you! A Marmalade Success

I would like to thank all the kind people who were generous enough to spend a moment to my inquiry regarding a search for ‘pectin’ which was called for in a marmalade recipe I had.

Most eveyone concurred that marmalade made from bitter Sevilla oranges did not require the addition of pectin…that the pips contained enough for a good setting.

My delema was that I wanted to use the sweeter, seedless oranges that I had fresh picked from my own trees! So I experimented and I did in fact use these very oranges, with the addition of a lemon. The whites were skinned off of the peels, which were then sliced very thinly, water and sugar was added and the mixture boiled to the setpoint recommended for marmalades. The result was a superb marmalade: sweet but tangy, with a lovely color and consistancy! A marmalade success! 🙂





I agree with John, giving false information is a criminal offence.

On reading John’s post I thought his comment was aimed at me, the other Tony that was on the earlier post.

I started drafting an email with anger, nearly got to the finish when I went back on the post and realised it was another Tony.

I quickly deleted the draft email. My application was successful using the link provided and I hope this has been of help to others.

I shall now call myself Tony T to stop any confusion, it has been known people have called me other names. Ha. Ha.

Sending a”Link” in an Email….

Just thought there may be others out there who are not sure how to send a link in an email so here is one explanation.

Display the web page you wish to send in your browser (Christine was looking at Sur, Spanish). Left click on the address in the long box at the top of the page to select it and it will change colour. Without moving your mouse, click the right -hand mouse button then left click on ‘Copy’ in the drop-down menu. You have now copied the web page address to your ‘Clipboard’.

Go to the email you want to send (I use Gmail but most email clients have similar functions) and left click on the ‘Chain-link’ symbol at the bottom of the page. A new box is now displayed, right click in the text box next to where it says Web Page then go down to ‘Paste’ in the drop-down menu and left click. You will see your web page address displayed in the box. Click OK and you should see a web page link displayed in blue like this http://www.diariosur.es/ in your email.

Sounds complicated but when you come to do it you should find it quite straight forward.

Hope Christine and a few others find this helpful.   Derek

Services Available Filter System & Anti Bacterial System 

Many times the water supply is contaminated with e.coli bacteria, this very common in the campo at this moment. With both systems UV light filter system and reverse osmosis system the water is safe for drinking and cooking, etc.

The UV light filter system completely removed the e.coli bacteria with other bacteria too , and the Reverse osmosis system removed a majority of the total dissolved solids (t.d.s.) particles from the water (95% of dissolved solids plus, 99% of organic compounds)

Water of lower mineralization are most suitable in general for the elderly, People with kidney stones, those with severe hypertension or fluid retention and for babies.

It produces enough water to satisfy a family and can be installed hidden under the sink.

I advise anyone living in the countryside to have their water analysed, as you may not realize the quality of the water from the wells that you have in your houses, and as you must know of the dangers of e.coli bacteria ,

Responses – Pectin – Not Needed

You don’t need pectin to make marmalade. I make it most years using the Seville oranges off the pueblo trees in Torrox  (collect them before the town hall remove them all and dump them!). The pectin is in the pips so put them all into a net/muslin bag and boil them together the peel, juice and water for the 2 hours or so it takes to reduce the liquid by half. Then remove the pips and squeeze out all the pectin from them. Then add the sugar and bring to setting point. Barbara

Recommendation- Specialist Camera Shop Needed- response

As far as I am aware there is not a specialist shop in Nerja. As you know what you want suggest you go on line to get the best deal. www.amazon.es sell the model you want and you will probably get a better deal. Or try any of the other on line photographic specialists. Richard T

Does anyone have any odds and ends of wall tiles that they don’t want. They can be broken.

I am going to be making a very large mosaic wall and need all sorts of colours and patterns.

Any other suggestions would be welcome (keep them polite please)

For Sale Sat. Box   

I’m selling it for a friend as he doesn’t use it.

It works fine and it comes with remote control and the manual. It needs setting up though. I tried it on a few Sky channels and it worked fine but it needs setting up fully for it to work correctly.

If anyone knows how to do this then it is a great box to buy at the price of 120€ ono.

These boxes are over £200 to buy new and still fetch £150 used so at this price it’s a bargain.
