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!

It was the best tour ever! Laura did an amazing job to deliver painless and excellent planning and arrangements. Everything promised was delivered and included much more than would normally be seen without ‘INSIDR’ tips. It is obvious that Emilie and Laura have put a lot of thought and effort into the tours they offer. We definitely recommend …

This is the third year in a row that we have traveled to France, as part of a two country vacation. Because of our positive experiences with Emilie's help in the past, and our desire to be relatively independent, we chose to have her craft our French trip again this year. In a word, she is incredible! We have such a high level of confidence in her …

You gave me so many good suggestions that honestly, I just walked everywhere you recommended, with something breathtaking around every corner. The guidebook was great and the suggestion to make an effort to try French was a solid one. I did much better once I got comfortable trying. I will recommend your service to anyone I know thinking at coming …

My wife and I traveled in Provence and Dordogne in early April 2018. Whie the weather was mostly on the rainy/windy side, the trip was so well planned and organized, with so much to see, that we did not pay much attention to the weather. All B&Bs were excellent in terms of accommodation, food (sic!) and very welcoming. All hosts were bi-lingual and …
