Recipe for Navel Orange Marmalade


  • 2kg navel oranges
  • 1 cup orange peels
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1.5kg sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter



Remove the skin and seeds from the oranges and lemon. Cut the oranges and lemon into cubes and cook in a pot until tender. Add in the orange peels. Remove pot from heat and add in the sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved and return the pot to the stove. Add in the butter. Cook the oranges for at least 30 minutes on medium heat.  Test the jam for consistency on a cold plate.  Continue cooking until the jam thickens to the right consistency.  It should be very sticky and not runny. Pour into sterilised bottles and seal tightly. Store the bottles of jam in a dark cool place.

    Excellent Marmalade I added 3 tbsp of amaretto. All my friends just loved it. I actually went to some of my friends and helped them make this marmalade

    just a quick question when i first measure out 2kgs of orange is that with the skin on or off to make 2kgs. I made it last year I made up 2kg with skin on, however, i just want to make sure I am doing the proper measure of orange

    Courious about the lemon jam. Is it bitter. Will try making it this year for the first time. I have about 4 lemon trees. II made the orange marmalade every year now. I have a huge amount of orange trees. I love it.
