Orange Marmalade

Our orange tree is covered in oranges. They're not quite ripe yet, perfect for sticky marmalade. Unfortunately, I barely made a dent (Michelle, would you like some?) After scouring the internet for recipes, I simply chopped up some oranges, added the same volume of water, boiled till the rind went soft, added an equal quantity of sugar (next time I would use a cup or two less) and boiled till the setting point was reached. It is sticky and sweet, and ever so slightly bitter. Yum!


  1. You have an orange tree with real, ripe oranges on it?? Lucky lucky lucky!!

  2. Would LOVE some! What no. are you? Shall I come round one afternoon and raid?
