marmalade in tucson

Saved my reputation !
jist of this is, my son has an orange tree in his back yard in Tucson and asked me to make marmalade, which I did using Another person's recipe. DISASTER
I then thought of Delia, ran her recipe off.
I produced the most fabulous marmalade, saved my face, I enjoyed using Delia's recipe so much !! it turned into the most enjoyable and rewarding experience with her FULL instructions. I am so grateful to Delia Thank you.
We are back home now, leaving my daughter-in-law happy to have lovely marmalade, and proud son ! She may even allow me in her kitchen again !!
Thank you, thank you, Delia

re marmalade in tucson

Well done, Liz. BTW How did the recipes differ? Were the oranges the same variety?

too-sweet marmalade

I followed a Delia recipe for marmalade which is way too sweet and I think this is because the oranges were not Seville and were possibly too sweet. How can I make 6lbs marmalade less sweet,otherwise its a waste.

too sweet marmalade

For traditional bitter sweet tangy marmalade you have to use sevilles. Dessert oranges will be too sickly. I think it's just one to chalk up to experience. Sorry.

Anastasia suggested using lemon juice which I did. I used 3 lemons for 6 lbs marmalade and also added juice and flesh of one pink grapefruit which was a great success. Now I have very usable marmalade with a tang! Thanks all.
