MARMALADE

MARMALADE

REAL MARMALADE
Ingredients
  1. 5 to 7 Limes
  2. 1kg Jam Sugar (Not preserving sugar)
  3. 500ml Water
Instructions
  1. Put the limes into a pan of boiling water and simmer for 25 minutes (the water should be just bubbling)
  2. Discard the water and allow the limes to cool a little (do not wash in cold water)
  3. Put the limes into a food processor or blender and purée (no need to remove the pips)
  4. Put the purée into a pan with the sugar, add enough water to help the sugar dissolve (about 100ml)
  5. Bring to the boil, then lower to a simmer for 5 minutes
  6. Allow to cool for a minute or two then put into sterilised jars
Tip
  1. Your marmalade should be jared up whilst hot, when you put a lid on it, the lid will vacuum close and the marmalade will keep up to 2 years.
Variations
  1. Use 4 or 5 lemons instead of limes
  2. Use lemon juice instead of water (makes a zingy tingle)
  3. Add 2cm of fresh ginger (add to blender)
  4. Combine different fruits, orange & grapefruit work well
Waxed Fruit??
  1. Do not worry that the fruit is waxed or not, you are simmering it first and you are not using the water... the wax gets poured away!
