Orange and Lemon Marmalade
Have you got lemons and oranges aplenty this winter?
If you have an overload of citrus, it might be time to do up a batch of our delicious orange and lemon marmalade or preserve.
You can share a jar or two with your family, friends or neighbours, or just keep it all to yourself!
What you’ll need:
6 oranges, halved, thinly sliced
2 lemons, halved, thinly sliced, seeds removed
4 cups water
2 1/2 cup white sugar
1 lemon, just the juice
Place fruit and water in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil on high. Boil rapidly for 25-30 minutes, or until oranges are very tender.
Reduce heat to low and add sugar, stirring until completely dissolved. Stir in lemon juice.
Increase heat to medium and boil, without stirring, for a further 20-25 minutes, or until set when tested.
Heat oven to 140°c.
Wash and dry jars then warm in the oven for 10 minutes.
Don't fill cold jars with hot marmalade as they may crack.
Fill jars almost to the top and secure lids.
Store in a cool dark cupboard until opened then refrigerate.
