Reviews for Strawberry-Citrus Marmalade
"I was surprised to see the previous review on this recipe. I've made this a couple of times and love it more than traditional orange marmalade because there is more flavor and a little sweeter. I'm wondering if they have never had a traditional marmalade before, which always has the peel and pith left in. Granted, marmalades are a little bitter but that is part of what makes them so good."
"What a waste of good fruit! Never have I dealt with such a mess of atrocious flavors. The pith completely takes over. I dug a hole and buried the entire potful. TAKE THE PITH OUT and it might be edible, and I stress maybe. Pass on this one folks! One star just to get the review in."
