Carrot Jam

This recipe came from "A Modern Herbal" - written in the 1900s

"Wash and grate some carrots; boil until reduced to a thick pulp. To 1 lb.(approx 570g) of this pulp add 9 oz.(250g) sugar, the juice and grated rind of 2 lemons, and 3 oz (75g) margarine. Boil the mixture well for 45 minutes to 1 hour".

"The result is a useful and inexpensive jam, which can be made for 6d. to 8d. per lb. (according to the price of the lemons), if all materials have to be bought, and for considerably less by those who have home-grown carrots available".
............... interesting!
