Marmalade

Hi I love cooking spicy food and have created banquets for over 60 people. However.

My next door neighbour makes home made jam and marmalade. I would love to try making marmalade any ideas please.

How long would it take. Fresh oranges or not? Any help would be useful.

Here is some info and I'm sure there are many books regarding the canning of food that include recipes.

orange marmalade is generally made with Seville oranges which are not easily found. I make marmalade with tinned Seville oranges and it comes out divine, here is what I use
Amazon.com : Hartleys Orange Mamade Thin Cut Orange Marmalade Mix 850g : Ma Made : Grocery & Gourmet Food


For consistency sake, pun intended, I use a powdered pectin product and carefully follow the directions on the package for jams and jellies.

If you want to do it the traditional (long-winded)way have a look at this

Seville orange marmalade | BBC Good Food

It does take a long time because of cooking the peel. Seville oranges only have a short season and are usually available in January.

Having said that, I'm with Bethzaring. MaMade makes lovely marmalade in a fraction of the time because the oranges are cooked for you. As far as I'm concerned it's not cheating.

It's kind of Craig to point you at the canning site but if you make marmalade properly and seal the jars properly you don't really need to can it as well. I'm in the UK and we never can jams and marmalade and no-ones died yet as a result of my preserves.

Thanks for this. Not as difficult as I expected.


4 Seville oranges (about 500g/1lb 2oz in total), scrubbed
1.7l water
1kg granulated sugar


Makes:
3 x 450g/1lb jars marmalade, plus 1 x 100g/3˝oz jar Good yield.


Is there anything else I could make the marmalade out of?

You can use any citrus: grapefruit, kumquat, lime, etc.

Marmalade

I haven't but I bet it would be good. I think marmalade is usually made from citrus peel, mango would be more of a jam. You could try a combo of citrus and mango, that would be tasty.

Whatever you do, do not try Onion Marmalade, you won't ever have time to cook up something else.
