Orange Marmalade

User Rating 1 Star Rating (1 Review)


Orange marmalade recipe. Scroll down to see more jams and preserves.


  • 2 pounds oranges
  • 2 large lemons
  • 8 cups water, approximately
  • 8 cups sugar, approximately


Wash oranges and lemons, removing and stem parts, but leave fruits whole. Place whole fruits in a large enamel kettle; cover with water. Cover and bring to a boil; simmer until a fork will pierce fruit easily, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove fruit to cool completely; set kettle with liquid aside.

When fruits are cooled, cut in half lengthwise. With a very sharp knife, cut in very thin slices. Remove seeds and reserve. Return seeds to juice in kettle and boil for 10 minutes. Strain juice and return to the kettle.

Add fruit slices to kettle and bring to a boil. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved, and continue boiling, stirring just to prevent scorching, until juices start to thicken and temperature reaches about 221° F. at sea level, or to 9° above your boiling point.

Remove from heat and skim off foam. Pour immediately into hot sterilized 1/2-pint jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Place seals on and adjust rings. Process in boiling water bath for 5 minutes, or follow jar manufacturer's directions for your altitude. Adjust lids again if necessary and cool upright. Makes about 6 1/2-pint jars.

This took all day and half the night . The marmalade is very runny . I would not recommend it to anyone , it is much quicker and easier to use the Betty Crocker recipe with pectin .
