Ages and ages ago, my dad mentioned how much he liked homemade marmalade…and so I jotted this down in my phone under Christmas Present Ideas, and left it there for much later in the year…then, when Christmas came around I decided I would make said marmalade as an extra gift!!! My granny makes marmalade alot, and i know she uses the product below to do it…it’s a bit of a cheat…so I thought I would give it a go…
You will need
Marmalade oranges (I bought mine on Amazon)
1.8kg of sugar
Various jars, I just kept collecting them over a few months as I knew I’d be making this
Wax discs ( I used these)
A huge pot
1. Clean all your jars and lids. This, whilst boring is essential!!!
Heat, stirring constantly, bring to the boil, then turn it down a bit, but keep it boiling, wait till it looks something like this …
6. Put the lids on whilst still hot, this will, once cold, hopefully create a vacuum and suck the little pop button on the top down!!!
7. Add labels and then cut out squares or circles of fabric, place on top and secure with rubber bands.
