I decided to give Orange Marmalade a try this week.
We had a huge Costco pack of oranges that were starting to kick the bucket and it’s always nice to find something to do with aging fruit.
I peeled and chopped six cups of fruit and thinly sliced the peel of one orange.
Then I combined the fruit and peel with six cups of sugar and six cups of water.
I brought the mixture to a nice rolling boil, added two packages of pectin and reduced until it reached a jam like consistency. I highly recommend using two packs of pectin. In my first batch I only used one and the jam didn’t set. I had to reprocess it and add more pectin.
Pour into hot, sterilized jars and process in a hot water bath for 15-20 minutes depending on jar size.
wow!! yum!! this looks so good and great idea for christmas baskets.
so nice to “meet” you through randi…excited to read more :)
So delicious….Can you send some to me in Surrey please? LOL I’m so terrified of canning and all the work it entails but this looked relatively easy :)
Hi, how much are two packages of pectin… See, i live in mx and i guess i have to buy it by grams… Thank you!!
One package is 50g so you will need 100 grams of pectin :)
