Lime and Choko marmalade – recipe by Jackie French
Makes one want to eat chokos!
Juice of 6 limes (or lemons)
1.75 kilos sugar
1 cup water
1 dessertspoon preserved ginger (optional)
Grated rind of 2 limes or 1 lemon
Peel & chop chokos, sprinkle with lime juice and 1 cup sugar, leave overnight
Next day, place in a pan with the water, ginger and rind, then heat, stirring, until the sugar on the chokos has dissolved.
Boil gently for an hour and a half then add the rest of the sugar.
Stir until the sugar dissolves, then boil rapidly for between an hour and an hour and half – until a little sets in cold water.
Transfer to hot sterilized jars and seal when cool.
