Delicious Easy Marmalade Recipe
Rate the Marmalade
Their are a whole range of marmalades, bitter, sweet, shredless or with fine or chunky peel in them. The range of sweetness varies too and that is why I love this recipe - because it is so easy to adapt it to your own particular taste.
- Oranges 2, ones with thin peel work best
- Lemon 1, Unwaxed
- Caster Sugar 1 cup
- Water 1/2 cup
Simmer for 30 minutes
How to make the marmalade
- Begin by washing the fruit, then roughly chop the oranges and lemon and remove pips.
- Place the fruit in a food processor and whizz until peel is finely chopped.
- Put fruit in saucepan with sugar and water and bring to boil.
- Once boiling reduce to a low simmer for 30 minutes - check frequently and stir to avoid it sticking to pan.
- After 30 minutes turn off the heat.
- Transfer to jar and keep in fridge for up to 3 months.

Make it your own
It is very easy to adapt this recipe so it is exactly how you like your marmalade. I like the lemon as it stops it being too sweet. You could use another orange if preferred.
Adjust the size of the peel for a chunkier marmalade simply don't whizz in the food processor for as long.
I made this with golden granulated sugar and it worked just as well.
Try adding an additional flavour - maybe ginger or even nutmeg
It's so nice I have used it in cakes and on scones instead of jam
The Advantage of Making Your Own
I love cooking and I love eating BUT I also like to stay the size I am and I am conscious about what I eat. I love making my own marmalade because I know exactly what it contains. For the purists I know I don't grow my own oranges or refine my own sugar but I know what I put in it and I know that is all that is in it. I find this is a really flavoursome fruity recipe and I love that I can adapt it to my own taste.
