Lemon Marmalade and Mediterranean Strawberry Jam

Lemon Marmalade and Strawberry Jam Recipes. Made with our own produce.

There is just so much growing in the hills behind Malaga in the south of Spain, that Pam has just had to develop these preserves and jams to help us deal with the super-abundance of Lemons, Oranges, Olives, Peaches and Avocados, to name but a few.
We have lived and worked around the Mediterranean for more than thirty years now, but even we were amazed when we lived in Periana in the Axarquia, the Eastern part of the Costa del Sol. The quality and quantity of fresh vegetables, fruit, nuts, meat and fish was just astounding.
These days, back on the coast, we have a huge choice of markets to visit, where we can buy the most amazing, freshest, best quality produce.

Delicious Homemade Mediterranean Jam

The first thing we did was to harvest some of the Lemons from our Lemon tree in the garden. With the addition of some of our own Kumquats - Pam made some delicious Marmalade.

The next thing that happened was that some Spanish friends dropped us in a massive box of fresh Strawberries. So it was quickly back to work for Pam.
