Q&A's? We are here to help. We being Delia and Lindsey. We work closely together and can answer any queries you have relating to Delia's recipes and our online Cookery School. Why not ask a question right now? What we can't do though, is answer questions about other recipes. (For general website queries or technical questions please click here)
I make Sevile Orange Marmalade every year using Delia's recipe. However mine is always a dark brown colour and not the golden colour shown in her recipe. I like my marmalade bitter so I use much less sugar (4kg for 3kg Oranges) rather than Delia's 2 kg for 1 kg of oranges. Could this be the reason because I probably have to boil for longer to get to the setting.
I don't particularly mind the colour - just interested.
I am making a Treacle Steam pudding in my slow cooker. I wanted to know what the cooking times would be as I think the recipe time is for a conventional oven. I have thought cooking on low for 4 hrs would be about right. Can you given any other suggestions please?
