Today I finally got around to making marmalade with some of the oranges given to us by a colleague of Jerry. I used Margueritte Patton's "whole orange" method found in her excellent Jams Preserves and Chutneys book, although I slightly adapted her recipe.
You will need (1/2 the recipe to make less)
- 900g of oranges (or thereabouts, I used 1kg) - seville or sweet. I used sweet as it isn't Seville season.
- 2.4 litres water
- 1.8kg sugar
- 2 tablespoons whiskey (my addition! I used Scottish Single Malt because that's what Jerry likes)
