Bought Roses lime marmalade is so delicious, I'm not sure I'd even try to make my own.

If you decide not to make lime marmalade, you can quarter them lengthways, then freeze them and add them frozen to jugs of water.

Here's one that I haven't tried, if you do try it, let us know how it turns out!

Fine lime shred marmalade

Make about 2.25kg/5lb

Ingredients 12 limes
4 kaffir lime leaves
1.2 litres/2 pints water
1.3 kg/3lb granulated sugar, warmed

1. Halve the limes lengthways, then slice thinly, reserving any pips. Tie the pips and lime leaves in a muslin bag and place the bag in a large pan with the sliced fruit.

2. Add the water to the pan and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer gently for 1 and a half-2 hours, or until the rind is very soft. Remove the muslin bag, leave to cool, then squeeze it over the pan to release any juice and pectin.

3. Add the sugar to the pan and stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil, then boil rapidly for 15 minutes, stirring occasionaly until setting point is reached (105C/220F).

4. Remove the pan from the heat and skim of any scum. Leave to cool for 4 minuste, stir, then pour into warmed sterilised jars. Seal, then label when cold. Store in a cool dark place.

Califrau, cheers. I will still give it a go even though it's probably as cheap to buy. Adds another 'string to my bow' so to speak smile
