Mandarins are in season here at the moment and I have fast discovered that I love them...before I had always thought of them as being in the territory of a primary school lunchbox, along with a vegemite sandwich and a cheese stick!
And now the weather has suddenly turned from warm sunny days to raining for three days straight and the kind of cold that makes you pull your woolly scarf up around your neck. I feel the sudden urge to cook...a lot.
So after making a yummy minestrone (I posted the recipe last Spring here) to warm us up, I decided to make Mandarin Jam. I found the recipe here on the blog 'The Traveler's Lunchbox'. This blog is amazing. The styling of the photos is gorgeous and, if the mandarin jam recipe is anything to go by, the recipes are delicious! Really, is there a better combination?...travel...good food...perfect!
