I am a social worker in Houston and I currently work for HUD helping huricaine katrina survivors stabalize and off FEMA funding. I recently started pickling things and have found that I really enjoy it. I also enjoy making marmalade. My parents live in Mexico and have fruit trees in their yard an d I have tried some marmalde with their oranges, tangerines and cumquats. I use recepies as a guide and almost always add my own twist.
