I was hoping to buy a couple of jars of yuzu marmalade, but I think I'm a little too early in the season because I couldn't find any around the Minoo station area.
I did come upon a vendor selling 3 yuzu (citron) for 150 yen (there was another vendor selling 1 yuzu for 100 yen!), so I bought some and decided to try making some myself.
The skins on most of these yuzu were speckled, so I only used the true yellow parts.
I squeezed the juice from the yuzu then from the peel, scraped away some of the pith.
Then I sliced the peel.
After slicing, I weighed the peel then measured the same amount of sugar.
In a pot, I added the peel, sugar, 2 cups water and the juice of the yuzu and brought everything to a boil.
While it was boiling, I scraped away the scum.
When the mixture started to evaporate to about half, the scum weaned and it was ready.
I think in the end I ended up with about 1 cup of marmalade.
A little bitter from the peels, but this is gonna be nice as yuzu tea or as a topping for yogurt.
