Is it Marmalade or Jam? Clementine!

I found this wonderful recipe for Marmalade in a woman's magazine or is it Jam?  thought I'd give it a try.  It said "Quick" and I'm all for that!  The recipe called for Tangelo's but I thought I'd try to use Clementines instead since I so love those juicy little oranges.  (FYI, no I did not add wine.)


 The ingredients were simple enough 
8 to 10 small fruits
1 granny smith apple
1 vanilla bean (I used 1tsp vanilla)
4 cups Sugar
3/4 c water
 Put all ingredients in a dutch oven or large cooking pot and bring to a boil.
While this is working cut the rind of the fruit in skinny strips and add to the pot.
Cook on low for an hour or so.  Your waiting for the mixture to thicken and cook off most of the water.  Then remove the vanilla bean and the apple pieces.  Let cool for an hour and put in jars.

 The nice thing is this recipe does not make a huge batch and the jars will store in the fridge for up to three weeks.  
I was so happy with the flavor of the Jam/ Marmalade.  Sweet and very tasty.

  While I was making my Jam/Marmalade the UPS guy came to my door with a package from my sister.
She lives out of the country and has been visiting with me for the winter and will not be here for my birthday.  Well my birthday is not until April and since we have not been together for my birthday in many years she wanted to get me something special..  I was so surprised to see a beautiful Angel come out of the box.  I just love it and it's proudly displayed on my mantel.  She said it was for out back on the deck, but no this sweet thing will stay in the house where it's safe from the elements.

 Thank you Dolly, "Your the best"

I am almost at the bottom of a bottle of marmalade that I received for Christmas and was wondering if I could make some myself, and if so, where would I find a recipe - and then you post this! Lovely coincidence - thank you!

I think the peel makes it marmalade! But whatever you name it, it sounds delicious, especially with the Clementines!

I've never made marmalade, but you make it look nicely easy. I have a bag of tangelos that would be perfect. Thanks! I just need the apple.

If I make this and blog about it, I'll be sure to link your post.
