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!

We heard about Emilie from a friend who used her travel services twice. They spoke so highly of her we figured we had to visit France just to meet her. We traveled to the Loire Valley with another couple and she interviewed us separately to understand what we wanted to see and do and what we didn’t want to do. As a result, she designed a perfect …

France Just For You planned the trip of a lifetime for my husband and me. We traveled to Normandy, St. Saint Michele, the Loire Valley and Provence. We are typically not road trip travelers, but this adventure brought us closer to the wonderful people of France than any group tour or "drop and plop" vacation could ever do. The bed and breakfasts …

Emilie and Guillaume: I want to send you this special thank you for making this trip truly spectacular! Our time in France was memorable precisely because of the people we've met, and the unique experiences we've had. We owe that all to you. There's no way that we ever would have been able to find the bed and breakfasts that you booked for us. And …

In 2013 I had 2 big reasons to plan a trip to France: a new grand baby boy in Avignon, and I wanted to surprise my husband with a trip to Normandy. He absolutely loves anything and everything he can find to read or watch that is related to WWII. So, I started exploring online for a custom tour designer that could put together a great itinerary for …

Emilie did an outstanding job choosing ideal locations, charming B and B's and accommodating our requests. We went from Normandy to Aix to the Alps to Paris and were happy with the entire trip. She created a personalized itinerary that made our travels very easy and our experiences feel unique. No doubt I would recommend France Just for You and …

We are preparing to do our second trip with Emilie to the Loire Valley, October 2018. Our first trip was to the region of Provence which was perfectly guided and gave us a most memorable experience. I highly recommend Emilie’s ability to put together a fabulous and memorable France just for you holiday.
