My thoughts
I made two of these for a part of a Mothers Day’s presents and the reviews were they were good. One said there was too much sugar; but then when they went back another time it tasted fine. I decided to decrease the sugar on my second attempt for this blog post as the marmalade has enough sugar to compensate.
