Marmalade Recipes

( Please see the sections on "Hints"  and Conversion Tables )

  Marmalades are jams which always include a citrus fruit and usually have rind suspended in the mixture. Citrus fruits are rich in pectin, so there is rarely any trouble getting these jams to set. 

Lime Marmalade

12 medium ( 1 kg ) Limes 1 1/2 litres ( 6 cups ) water
7 cups ( 1 3/4 kg ) sugar  

          Slice unpeeled limes thinly and discard the seeds. Combine the limes and water in a bowl. Cover and stand overnight.

        Transfer the mixture to a large saucepan. Bring to the boil, and simmer for about an hour or until the rind is soft.

        Measure the fruit mixture, and allow 1 cup of sugar to each cup of fruit mixture. Return the fruit mixture and sugar to the pan and stir over the heat, without boiling, until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil, uncovered, and without stirring for about 20 minutes, or until the marmalade sets when tested. Pour into hot sterilized jars and seal when cold.

Makes about nine cups.
