This is my mother’s orange marmalade recipe and it has been improved over the years. This marmalade tastes sweet rather than bitter. It’s delicious to have on toast for breakfast.

 

Ingredients

For 7 to 9 jars of marmalade:

  • 2.5 lbs of oranges (weigh the oranges with both ends cut off)
  • 1 yellow lemon
  • granulated sugar

The preparation of this orange marmalade does not take too long, but it's spread across 3 days.

 

Cooking instructions

Day 1:

  • Cut the entire oranges and the lemon into small pieces. (Do not peel the fruit) 
  • Add 7,5 cups of water. 
  • Let it rest for 24 hours.

Day 2:

  • On a preserving pan, let it cook for 1 hour on a rolling boil. (Do not cover)
  • Let it rest again for 24 hours.

 

Day 3:

  • Weigh the dish and add 1.3 lbs (or 1lb and 5 oz) of granulated sugar for each pound.
  • Let it cook for 1 hour on a rolling boil, once again.

 

 

  • Put the hot orange marmalade into jars, close them and leave them upside-down for an hour. The air will come out and the marmalade can be stored for several years (before opening). This technique works for all type of jam.

ENJOY your perfect orange marmalade!

I can't say enough about how much we loved working with Emily and Laura. I am a wine geek and they put together a full day private tour of Burgundy (with a fantastic guide) and a half day visit and basket lunch at a wonderful winery in Provence. In addition there was a private half day walking tour of Paris and a private tour of the Palais des …

Anyone planning a trip to France, whether for the first time or for the twelfth (like me), will benefit from the fabulous itinerary that Emilie can craft for you. My husband and I just returned from 2 1/2 weeks in the Medoc and the Loire Valley that Emilie planned for us: top-notch historic B&Bs with character, charming friendly hosts and sumptuous …

There are not enough superlatives, or kind words, to describe the level of service Emilie, with France Just for You, provided us from the moment we contacted her, throughout our trip, and even her thoughtful emails upon our return. We contacted Emilie with a list of all the places we wished to go, the things we hoped to do, and our budget. We …

We had a wonderful experience with Laura and Emilie- they were very responsive to all of our questions and needs and helped us plan a fabulous trip! While we were there, they were also very helpful when we needed assistance with reservations or had questions about processes during COVID.
