Cranberry Orange Marmalade in bowl and on toastI was craving my mum's homemade orange marmalade the other morning but had ran out of it. She uses lots of orange zest in hers, which I love. So I thought I'd try to remake it with a bit of a twist in my Instant Pot... because I wanted it in an instant! I added fresh cranberries to it since we have so many around for the holidays. What a tangy delight! I'll be making plenty of jars to give out for the holidays.


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes plus cool time


  • 2 lb oranges, scrubbed and dried
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 to 2 cups additional sugar to taste


  1. Use a mandolin or sharp knife to cut the oranges into thin slices. Discard the tops and bottoms. If you'd like your marmalade to have less zest, remove the zest from half the oranges and just use the inner fruit.
  2. Orange slices
  3. Place orange slices in the Instant Pot with 1 cup water.

  5. Place lid on Instant Pot and set to Pressure Cook for 10 minutes. Make sure venting is closed. When the timer goes off, allow machine to vent on its own.

  7. Pour in 1 cup of sugar and stir.
  8. sugar vadded to Orange slices
  9. Set Instant Pot to Saute mode.

  11. Add cranberries and cook with the lid off, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon. Keep adding sugar to taste as the cranberries pop and the mixture thickens. My oranges were particularly sweet so I did not have to add too much sugar.

  13. Keep cooking and stirring until an inserted candy thermometer placed in the center reaches 223 degrees F. If you don't have a thermometer, place a teaspoon of the mixture on a cold plate and let it sit for 30 seconds. When you tilt the plate, it should move very slowly. If it runs easily, it needs more cooking time.

This looks fabulous, Toosa! Quick question, please? For those of us who don't have an Instant Pot, what's the stovetop cooking time?
