CREAMING IN COOKING
CREAMING, in baking, is the technique of blending ingredients — usually granulated sugar — together with a solid fat like shortening or butter.

The dry ingredients are mixed or beaten with the fat until it becomes light and fluffy and increased in volume, due to the incorporation

HOW TO MAKE A MARMALADE 
What is the difference between marmalade and jam?
Marmalade is made from citrus fruits (then sweetened), jam is made from sweet fruits

Take two navel oranges, one lemon , one large  pink grapefruit and wash real clean.
Peel orange skin and slice/ chop skin thinly about 1 inch long. 

For the grapefruit and lemon, cut off  the top and base, use a vegetable peeler to get the skin.
Remove pith, seeds and as much of the side membranes as possible and slice orange flesh thinly.

Put all skin slices and cut flesh in  a pot and add 5 cups of white sugar.. Add water and bring to boil , then simmer slowly about 40-45 minutes or until  mixture thickens. 
It should  stay firm when you nudge it with your finger when tested in a cold spot/ cold plate. If it is a bit runny, boil a few minutes longer. Let cool and  then bottle- ready for use...........

  1. Hi Wan, wow! My favourite kind of breakfast is marmalade, the 3 fruit kind. Love the tangy scent.
    I guess as baking, cooking not in my resume, I'll just buy rather try my hand using your recipe....my wife wouldn't appreciate I burn her oven or the kitchen.

    Love your pics with the black background, very classy.
    Wan, here's wishing you and all at home a selamat hari raya haji.
    Have fun and simpan satu lagu dalam hati.
    Lee.
