Wow, where has the time gone? It has been a fast and furious summer, and I have been far too busy to keep up my cooking, recipes and writing. So I finally settled down in time to get this wonderful treat done, and I am so happy to share this quick and easy marmalade recipe with you. You are going to be surprised how easy and quick and how low the cost, especially after you take a good look of the price of marmalade in your local markets.


Not counting cooling time, this is 20 minutes at the most for preparation. Toast, sliced bread and English muffins are just great. Also, the recipes I viewed before creating my own, called for far more sugar. When you try this one, you will find there is just the right amount of sugar, and the lime juice adds a nice touch.



3 medium navel oranges

6 tablespoons water
1  cups sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice



1. Scrub your oranges thoroughly. You are going to use the entire orange so you want to make sure the skins are super clean.
2. Remove the ends of the oranges and cut the oranges into small sections.
3. In a medium saucepan, place the water and the sugar and bring to a gentle boil.
4. Add the orange and lime juice. Bring the mixture back to a boil and stir continuously.
5. Remove from the heat and, using an immersion blender, break down the orange mixture, but do not work it too much. You want the marmalade to remain chunky.
6. Return to heat. Cook for about 10-12 minutes on a low boil, stirring frequently.
7. Allow the mixture to cool completely before placing in glass jars with tight lids.
8. Refrigerate several hours before serving.


This makes for a really nice gift, especially if you are invited to breakfast or brunch. Make a large amount and think about the holiday gift giving times.
