I have two orange trees in my backyard here in Arizona, and as they’ve matured, we have been blessed with more and more oranges… this year, more than we could eat and give away. I decided I should try making marmalade and don’t know why I never thought of it before — such a great way to preserve our oranges. My orange marmalade recipe is so delicious and fairly easy. It thickens up all on its own without store-bought pectin… I promise! (The lemon helps in that process.)
I ended up combining two recipes that I found online and had great success. My brother LOVES this marmalade and says that eating it on good toast with peanut butter seriously takes it to the next level. You can cut your peels smaller than suggested and experiment with sugar amounts depending on how bitter you like your marmalade. Give it a try, you will feel so accomplished with yourself!
