marmalade

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Stephen, she explains about pips and pith. Anastasia's recipes (on her DoL) profile, are great.

Marmalade recipe

As promised here is my marmalade recipe. I will post it in My recipes too.

MARMALADE

3lb Seville Oranges
2 lemons
6 pints of water
6lbs granulated or preserving sugar


1. Wash dry and cut fruit in half. Squeeze out juice and strain into bowl through a sieve keeping all the pips. Also pull out all the pulp and put in with the pips into a muslin bag.
2. Slice the peel either by hand or by machine.
3. Put sliced peel into pan with water and the bag of pips and pulp and cover with cloth.
(the recipe says stand overnight but I don’t always bother)
4. Put the pan on bring to the boil turn down and simmer for about 2 hours or until the liquid has reduced by about half.
5. Remove the bag of pips (discard pips) and add the sugar gradually stirring until it is dissolved. When the sugar has dissolved then bring to a rolling boil
6. When it is boiling start testing for a set after about 12 minutes. It always varies.
7. Leave for 5 minutes before starting to pot up.
8. This recipe usually makes about 10 jars.

Good luck

Thank you so much. This looks just what I wanted. Now that I am free of coughs and sneezes I am on my way out to look for the oranges to make a batch. x

seville oranges

You are a little early for seville oranges. Leave it a couple of weeks, they should be in the shops by then.

Can't beat home made marmalade. I always give too many pots away and then regret it :) !!

I expect to be sent to sit on the naughty stair for this but I use Mamade tinned cooked marmalade oranges. They come in either orange or lemon. Very quick (takes about 1/2 an hour including bottling) and tastes much better than bought marmalade. I usually put a slug of whisky in the orange and gin in the lemon.

The tinned oranges are a good place to start because it's virtually impossible to fail so you get a good feeling about your preserving skills.

Incidentally, if you are new to jam and marmalade making you may not know this little wheeze - try and find cane sugar (Tate and Lyle is the most common). The set is better than with "British" sugar which is made from sugar beet. I don't know why this should be but it's true. I'd worked it out for myself years ago and was always laughed at by jam amd marmalade makers in the family but then I read an article in the Daily Telegraph written by a woman who was head preserving competition judge for the Womens' Institute and their expert in all things jammy which confirmed my own findings.

This is where Lemain comes back and tells you there is no difference bewteen the two sugars at this point. If he doesn't I will! lol, I can't think why there should be a difference - but...

On the naughty stair

I started using Mamade 20 yrs ago for a number of reasons, the main one was that I could make fresh small batches throughout the year.
Ps I am down to my last few tins of thick cut, I bought 12 tins just before they discontinued it."

I don't know why either but we were discussing this with a group of teachers one day and a science person said that the chemical formula was very slighly different for the two types of sugar. Whether this could affect things I don't know.

Don't shoot me, I'm only the messenger.

I can only say that it works for me and everyone else I know who is aware of it. I get a set everytime and I don't use extra pectin (except in the Mamade as it comes with pectin in it). I've been making jam and marmalade since I was 10.
