First of all, welcome to Penny Wise via here and Susan Bell via Bloglovin.
I have always been able to multi-task quite easily, but have noticed recently, that I am not as good as I used to be. For example, I was making yoghurt and marmalade, plus dancing to the radio (like you do). All was going swimmingly until a particular stage of the yoghurt making.
The milk was at the correct temperature for adding the yoghurt starter (a little of the last batch was in a small bowl). I picked up the bowl and very nearly scraped it into the sink instead of the warm milk. First problem avoided.
Got it right but then, almost poured it into the outer container that has the heating element in it, rather than the inner container. Sorted myself out and did it all fine in the end:
Back to the marmalade which by now was ready for putting into the jam jars. Although I was cooking basic marmalade, I like to vary the flavour, so 2 jars were for adding diced ginger and syrup to, 2 more for adding whisky to and the last 2 to be left plain.
I use a jam funnel and all again went well, until for some odd reason, I picked up one of the hot jars without realising it had too thin a neck. I stood the funnel on top (rather than in it) and started to pour in a ladle full of hot marmalade. Yes, you guessed, it ran out between the funnel and top of the jar.
Luckily I noticed quickly and was able to save most of that ladle full. Wiping up hot marmalade is no joke but I stopped to do it whilst fishing out another jar from the oven. Anyway, halfway through each flavour, I stopped to add either ginger or whisky and finished off. It has set well, even if the ginger has (unusually) sunk to the bottom. I shall look forward to that bit enormously!
