A thing about going to the World Marmalade Championships

I mentioned these earlier this week on Twitter. They’re held in Penrith every spring and are *completely* wonderful. My mum has entered her own marmalade before (and was a bit miffed to be cross down for undercooked peel, as the picture above shows), and this year both she and my sister and posting sticky jars to Cumbria. Entries close on February 10th if you want to get in on the action and they’re all judged by the WI. Read all about it below.
