Homemade MarmaladeMaking your own marmalade is so easy. It's also a good way to use up everything that comes with the orange fruit, from the meat to the juice to the skin. The trick to this bright and vibrant marmalade is in the boiling method. Using pectin is completely optional. This recipe shows both ways.

Ingredients:

Steps:

  1. Wash oranges. Peel orange skin as thick as possible, then cut into thin strips.
  2. Homemade Marmalade
     
  3. Cut orange fruit along with its inner skin into small segments.
  4. Homemade Marmalade
     
  5. In a pot, boil the orange skins skins until they soften. Drain, soak in cold water, and then reboil. Doing this a couple times rids the orange peels of their bitterness, resulting in the most yummy marmalade ever.

  7. Cook the orange segments in a few tablespoons of water until softened. Add the cooked and softened peel, sugar, (pectin if you're using it), then add fresh water to cover. Bring to a boil and simmer until it thickens, about 45 minutes to an hour. Cool and refrigerate.

Another great way to remove bitterness is to remove the pith - the white stuff - from the inside of the peel. Easy to do after boiling, but wait until everything's cool to the touch.

Scraping with a spoon will do the job easily.

I don't boil the peel or remove the pith - I suppose I just like my marmalade a little bitter.
