Blueberry Orange Marmalade

"I have not tried this marmalade. I'm posting this for safe keeping. I found this recipe in Complete Book Of Small Batch Preserves. Blueberries and citrus enhanced with a hint of cinnamon make this marmalade quite unusual. The recipe is adapted from one developed by the Wild Blueberry Producers Association Of Nova Scotia. I plan to use Splenda for the sugar."

Remove and discard cinnamon stick.

    I made this and it turned out great, although I was unsure about adding the whole rinds, cut thinly, as the recipe seems to suggest. I always heard the white pith is very bitter and only the peel should be used in recipes. So I used a potato peeler to peel off very thin pieces of the rind with no pith and then I cut those in very thin strips. I also didn't use the cinnamon stick because that just didn't appeal to me. Also, I wound up with only 2.5 cups. Maybe if I had used the very thick rinds, with pith, the yield would have been greater.

Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her. I really enjoy searching for new recipes especially here on Zaar. I'm always finding and adding to my cookbook new and exciting recipes. I also enjoy posting recipes here on Zaar as well. I really love collecting different cookbooks. I have over a 100 and growing! I collect mostly Taste Of Home &amp; community cookbooks. The minute I get a cookbook home I sit down and I read my cookbooks from front to back like novels. I work for the Elmira City School&nbsp;District and YWCA. I'm raising my&nbsp;8 yrs old newphew. I'm a part time college student studing Early Childhood Education, but taking time off and hoping to return soon. I live in Elmira, New York where famous writer Mark Twain did some of his writing and he once lived. I have&nbsp;1 cats Samantha and&nbsp;1 dog our newest member MOO MOO (my nieces dog) who are my children as I do not have any human children of my own. I lost&nbsp;four of my very dear children (kitty's) Callie June 2007, Miss Kitty in March 2010, my dog Angel in December 2010, and my other cat Chase in September&nbsp;2011. I'm recently&nbsp;married on August 12th 2010. I love spending time with my niece&nbsp;9 yrs old and my newphews&nbsp;7 &amp;&nbsp;8 yrs old. I enjoy couponing and trading coupons. I love the internet as there's so much to look at online even though you know where I spend most of my time! I enjoy going to yard sales and estate sales every spring - fall. I love gardening and have many different pretty flowers.</p> 8724441"
