Even cortisone doesn't help there. I get blisters on my hands and feet within a few minutes of eating anything except apples and pears (peeled) or bananas. It started when I hit 40; my sister (44) is now developing the same problem. Weird, huh?
Oh, YIKES!! I'd go nuts. I'll remember not to serve you fruit salad, if you ever visit!
As for my favourite on toast -- well, I don't actually do that very often, but when I do, I have a very soft spot for ginger marmalade -- oh yum!
The very best, though, and no longer available, is the peach marmalade my mum used to make, many years ago. I thought I had died and gone to heaven, but by the time I was cooking, myself, she had not made it for years and had lost the recipe
One of these days, I may begin experimenting, because it really was to die for.
