Delightfully Delicious Chunky Orange Marmalade
- 6 Seville bitter oranges
- 1 large sweet orange
- 1 lemon
- 2 litres water
- 5 cups white sugar
Cover oranges and lemon in a large saucepan filled with the water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes until fruit are very soft. Remove from saucepan, but leave water in pot. Add sugar to water and stir until dissolved, continuing to simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
While sugar water mixture is simmering, cut fruit in half and slice thinly, removing any seeds. Tie pieces into a piece of cheesecloth. Return fruit to saucepan (in cheesecloth) and cooking for an additional 20 minutes, stirring often. After 20 minutes remove fruit from pot and cheesecloth and pour marmalade into sterilized jars, sealing well.
Makes about 2.5 litres of marmalade.
