Orange Marmalade Recipe
- 4 Cleaned & Seedless Oranges
- 2 pc. Lemons
- 8 cups Granulated Sugar
- 8 cups Water
- First, take the oranges and lemons. Cut them both into half crosswise, followed by cutting into thin half-moon slices.
- Then, take a large stainless steel pot and add the sliced oranges, lemons and leftover juices. But make sure you remove the seeds from the lemons.
- Now, add the water to the pot and give it a boil. After it is boiled, stir the sugar into it until it is dissolved.
- Keep it covered and let it rest overnight at room temperature.
- The next day, again give it a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Let it simmer uncovered for 2 hours. Now, increase the heat to medium and boil for another 30 minutes.
- The marmalade is almost ready and keeps cooking until the temperature reaches 220 degrees. Achieving this temperature is important as at this temperature, the natural pectin gels with the sugar.
- Now, we have to check if the marmalade is ready or not. To check, place a small amount on a plate and refrigerate the mixture until it becomes cool.
