Homemade Orange and Lemon Marmalade

If you start making jam, it's unlikely that you'll ever stop.  I made enough jam to give to my family and to keep for myself.  Just when I want to pack up, my daughter's piano teacher gave me some homegrown orange and lemon again.  So this continue my jam making journey....

I didn't have enough orange to work out a recipe for marmalade the last time when I had those unwaxed organic oranges.  For full story, please click here. This year I had a bit of a trouble as I mistaken an orange looking lemon making the first batch of jam too tangy. So I made another lot and mix it with the first batch untill I'm happy with the taste. The addition of lemon to the marmalade makes it tastes different (the taste that I prefer) but you can omit that if you don't like it too tangy.  Mrs piano likes to have her marmalade with bacon and egg, I'd never tried that though.  I'd prefer to make my marmalade almond muffins again.

Orange and Lemon Marmalade
(bread machine method)

1/2 lemon, flush only, chopped
About 4 oranges, included the grated zest and chopped flush to make up 550g with the lemon flush
1 2/3 cups sugar
2 1/2 tbsp Jam Setta

Put the chopped fruit into the bread machine followed by sugar and Jam Setta.  Press the "jam" button and finish the cycle.  Pour hot jam into sterilised jar and seal.  Keep into the fridge to keep it fresh. 



  1. Home-made stuff is always good. What an interesting combination of orange & lemon! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I like homemade jams. Must be great spread on some homemade bread for the breakfast.

  3. You are right! Homemade jam are indeed great gifts for friends and family. This will be a great Christmas gift idea :D

  4. oh i would love some of the lemon! I could have it on my toast and bagels everyday for the rest of my life! LOL!

  5. Mmmmmm... Marmlade! That's my favorite jam. I have tried making strawberry jam but never thought marmlades could be so simple to prepare. Time to get oranges ;)
