Preparation 30 mins, plus overnight soaking || Cooking approx.1 hour

Makes 3 x 450g jars

Classic Orange Marmalade Recipe: Great For Toast:


You Will Need:

  • 650g oranges (Seville, preferably)
  • 1.5 litres water
  • 1kg Tate & Lyle Preserving Sugar

How To Make:


  1. Firstly, squeeze the juice from the oranges, reserving the pips. Put the juice into a preserving pan or large saucepan.
  2. Scrape the pulp from the orange peel and put it onto a large square of muslin with the pips. Tie up tightly and put into the saucepan with the water.
  3. Use a sharp knife to shred the orange peel finely. Add to the saucepan. Cover and leave to soak overnight (this helps to extract more pectin to set the marmalade).
  4. Next day, put the saucepan on the heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer over a very low heat for 30 minutes to soften the peel. Remove the muslin bag, squeezing it to push out as much of the liquid as possible.
  5. Add the Tate & Lyle Preserving Sugar to the saucepan and place over a low heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and boil steadily for 20 minutes, taking care to keep an eye on the marmalade to ensure that it doesn’t boil too rapidly.



  • Sterilize 3 x 450g Jars by washing them in hot soapy water, rinsing well, then placing them in a low oven at 150°C/Fan 130°C/Gas Mark 2 for 10 minutes.
  • Test the marmalade for setting point. To check, remove the saucepan from the heat, spoon a little marmalade onto a cold plate and leave for 2 minutes – it should wrinkle softly when your finger is pushed over the surface. If this point has not been reached, return the saucepan to the heat and continue to boil for another 2-3 minutes. Test as before until setting point is reached. (You may need to test several times, though be patient, as this testing is crucial to achieving the correct consistency).
  • Allow the marmalade to settle for 10 minutes, then pour it into the hot sterilized jars. Leave to cool, then seal and label. Store in a cool place for up to 1 year.

Cook’s Tip: The marmalade will look quite runny when you pour it into the jars – it will set upon cooling (so long as you have followed the instructions for testing the setting point!).

    This looks delicious! I’ve only tried making my own jam/ jelly a couple of times because I do find the process rather intimidating and I’m always afraid I’m not jarring it properly and might kill someone with some sort of food borne illness, BUT there is nothing like fresh jam made with ripe fruit.

      Ha, I know what you mean. I love fresh jam too.
