What’s better on warm, buttered toast than homemade marmalade? Homemade marmalade with a little extra zest!
- Place the Seville oranges into a saucepan. Cover with water and bring to the boil with a lid on the pan. Boil for 1.5 hours. (Ensure the oranges are always covered with water topping up the pan with boiling water as required).
- Remove the oranges from the pan and allow to cool slightly. Reserve 200ml of the cooking water and discard the excess.
- Cut each orange into quarters and remove any pips. Use a spoon to scrape the pulp from each quarter and set to one side.
- Thinly slice the orange peel and add to the pan along with the pulp and the reserved 200ml of cooking water.
- Add the lemon juice and jam sugar to the pan. Slowly bring to the boil stirring to help dissolve the sugar.
- Boil for 8 minutes stirring regularly to avoid the marmalade catching on the bottom of the pan.
- Remove the pan from the heat, add the gin (optional) and stir gently.
- Spoon into sterilised jars, seal and label.
Swap the gin for whisky for a winter warming treat. Chase Seville Marmalade Gin gives this marmalade a zesty kick, or you can use classic gin.
