Orange Marmalade

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
Cutting Board
Measuring Cups
Candy Thermometer


Oranges - 6 smaller ones
Sugar - 6 cups
Water - 6 cups
Limes - 1
Lemon - 1


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.

  4. Dear Madam ,

    Your Blog has been wonderful.I have been following this for a while.

    Me and my wife highly appreciate your delicacies, language and style of the blog ,presentation and the patience to bring a bit India in it. Kudos.

    A small suggestion,hope you don't mind- Some of the photographs (2009 recipes ) are not great, I'm used to your high quality photos , see if it is possible to keep up your High standards.

    Thought will share some simple recipe with you , Panneer Soda,(Sure most South Indians likes it) -
    3 Tbsp Sugar, 3 drops of rose essence, 1 can soda , few cubes of ice ! ( I don't think you get in US, do you ?)

    Goes well with crisp crackers topped with pesto genovese sauce( spread a little) and grated cheddar.

    Hope you enjoy it. ( Do share with the rest of your friends )

    Must say your recent post of candied orange peel is mind blowing .

    Keep Blogging, you have a fan club in Singapore.
