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 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.

My husband and I used Emilie from France Just For You to plan a special trip for our anniversary. We loved the fact that our trip had structure, but at the same time, we had freedom to explore as we wished. We also loved the fact that the trip included guided tours, but we were not tied to a tour group as such. Emilie planned our trip according to …

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 …

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 was the best trip to France we have ever been on! It was the second trip that Emilie and Laura at France Just for You set up for us. The first was a trip around Provence, which we loved so much that we asked them to set up our second trip to the Loire Valley, Normandy, and Paris. Both trips were tailored to our interests - food, wine, art …
