lady Marmalade

That’s been hubby’s nick name for me today because I turned our kitchen into one hot and sticky mess making citrus marmalade.Usually I make clementine marmalade for Christmas but I had so many beautifully sweet oranges and I thought they would be great for marmalade.
We love eating it on toast or croissants on the weekend. It’s a little picky work to cook your own but it taste so much better than store bought and it contains no additives.
8 ripe oranges, washed well
2 ripe lemons, washed well
Grate from 3 oranges and 1 lemon
3 cups water
5 1/2 cups sugar
1 vanilla bean, seeds and stalk
  • Peel oranges and lemons and remove all white stuff.
  • Save all seeds as contains pectin which will helps make a marmalade that will last longer.
  • Place seeds and a couple of the peels in a cheese cloth and tie it up to a little package.
  • Chop the fruit and place in a pot with water, grate, vanilla beans and the cloth package and bring to a boil on medium heat.
  • Cook for 45 minutes.
  • Remove package and vanilla stalk.
  • Add sugar a little at the time until it all dissolved.
  • Bring to a boil again and cook for 20 minutes or until marmalade has thicken .
  • Pour into hot and clean glass jars.
  • To do this dip each jar into boiling hot water.
  • Let marmalade cool complete before placing clean lids on.
  • Store in fridge.
