Making 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.

Total Time: 1.5 hours

Source: My mother


  • 4 medium oranges
  • 2 cups sugar
  • water
  • 1 pack of pectin (optional)


  1. Wash oranges. Peel orange skin as thick as possible, then cut into thin strips.
  2. Cut orange fruit along with its inner skin into small segments.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Squeeze the orange and lemons saving the juice. Then grind the rinds and cook in enough water to cover until tender (about 30 minutes). Add the ground carrots and cook until tender (about 20 minutes).

Does anyone have a recipe for Marmalade that let's you use other citrus fruits? I have a Calamondin tree/bush that DH would like me to make marmalade with.

Calamondins make the best of all marmalades. We started making it years ago when our middle daughter was only 8 years old. She visited a neighbor lady whose tree was loaded, and helped her pick and wash them in preparation for making marmalade. After helping our neighbor make the marmalade, she was hooked, so she got permision to pick a bagful to make marmalade at home. We made the marmalade for the first time that very day...over 45 years ago now.


We only use calamondins and sugar, nothing else, and the most important thing to remember is to cut the calamondin peels into very thin slivers after washing, halving and removing the seeds. Chop the fruit pulp as small as possible but that isn't really necesary. It will cook up in the process. It's a long process, but it's just wonderful. Use peel and all, of course, and every drop of juice. Measure the cut fruit, juice and peel and add an equal amount of sugar. Slowly bring to a boil, reduce heat and stir until it returns to a simmer. Continue cooking for a half hour, and stir frequently so that the mixture doesn't scorch. Very important not to scorch the fruit.

After 1/2 hour of simmering and stirring, ladle into small jars and put on tight lids. We've never needed to do anything else. The amount of sugar acts as a preservative and the marmalade will last for a very long time. It quickly became our favorite and still is.


Wishing you the best of luck,
