Seville Orange marmalade

28 Feb

Was in the market one day and came across Seville Oranges! I decided I would make homemade marmalade and show you all how easy it is and how amazing it tastes. Yes I know it is fairly high in sugar but a little bit on toast doesn’t hurt and goes lovely with a nice cup of tea!

Seville Orange marmalade

1kg of marmalade oranges
3kgs of sugar
2 Lemons zest-juice
4 pints of water (+/- 200)
Cheese cloth or a old clean cloth

Method:
(See pic for every stage)
Half the oranges

Juice the oranges
Remove the pulp and membrane of the oranges keep to the side

Half all the oranges again. And slice the rind into thin slices, keep aside. Juice and zest the Lemon. Keep the leftovers and place it with the orange pulp.

Put all the pulp and seeds in a cheese cloth. And tie

Place your water in a big pot add the juice (orange and lemon), add zest, orange rind, bring to the boil and simmer for 2hours. (With a lid on )
Remove cheese cloth at this stage. Squeeze as much of the liquids from it as possible

Place your sugar in a heatproof dish and warm up in the oven.

When the sugar is warm add it to the pot and when the sugar is dissolved, bring to the boil and boil for 15mins turn off and allow to cool for a few mins then place it in sterilized jars and seal.
