If you have been following my blog for long you would know that I like Oranges. Among all jams I have always relished Marmalade. The bitter sweet taste with a slight tang makes it a very unique jam. I always buy Dundee brand marmalade jam from Trader Joe's, but I have not ever since I decided to make them myself. To my liking Ina Graten of Barefoot Contessa's show featured a wonderful marmalade jam that was her friend Ann's recipe. I followed her recipe but substituted limes instead of lemons. The sugar was also something I adjusted. It is a process but if you have the patience to go with it you will have some delicious marmalade in your pantry for a couple of month.
Heavy Bottom Stock Pot
Oranges - 6 smaller ones

1. Cut the oranges, limes and lemons in half and make half moon slices(very think slices).
2. Add water and cook it to a boil.Then add sugar and allow to dissolve.Cover and let this sit over night.
3. Next day place it back on stove and cook until the liquid starts to boil, then reduce and turn the heat to low and allow to simmer for 2 hours.
4. Cook until the jam reaches a 220 degree F and then turn off the heat.
5. Store in sterilized bottles and enjoy it over a slice of toast.
