This is a very tasty recipe. Two things I didn't like about it however were #1: as written, you end up with VERY large chunks of peel in the marmalade at the end that I ended up having to fork out ( I chopped some pieces up and put them back in), and #2 mine came out a little runnier than I would have liked (personal preference or possibly very juicy blueberries) so I cooked it a little longer and only ended up with 4 half pints. Overall a good recipe though. I'd make it again. :-)
