Strawberry-Citrus Marmalade

I love strawberries but had never picked them until my neighbors took me to the local strawberry farm years ago. The next day, I used the motherlode of bright red strawberries to make this wonderful marmalade.—Margaret Hill, Louisville, Kentucky

    I LOVE , LOVE, LOVE this recipe! My fridge is never without a jar. I enjoy marmalade anyways, and the strawberries add just the right touch. It's easy and not very expensive to make.

    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.
