Mojito Lime Marmalade With A Hint Of White Rum:

How To Make Mojito Lime Marmalade:

Preparation 1 hour | Cooking approx. 1 hour 30 minutes

Makes 6 x 450g jars


  • 1kg citrus fruit, made up of 2 lemons, and approximately 10 limes
  • 1 litre boiling water
  • 15g fresh mint leaves
  • 1.8kg Tate & Lyle Preserving Sugar
  • 100ml white rum

How To Make Mojito Lime Marmalade With A Hint Of White Rum:

  1. Firstly, squeeze the juice from the lemons and limes, reserving the pips. Put the juice into a preserving pan or large saucepan.
  2. Scrape the pulp from the lemon and lime peel and put it onto a large square of muslin with the pips. Tie up the corners tightly and put it into the saucepan. Put the mint leaves into the saucepan and add the boiling water. Leave to infuse for about 20 minutes, until cool. Meanwhile, use a sharp knife to shred the citrus peel finely. Remove the mint leaves from the saucepan with a draining spoon.
  3. Add the peel to the saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, then cover and simmer gently for 30 minutes to soften the peel, then remove the lid and cook for a further 20 minutes, so that the liquid reduces by about one-third.
  4. Remove the muslin bag, squeezing it with a wooden spoon to push as much of the liquid as possible back into the saucepan.
  5. Tip the Tate & Lyle Preserving Sugar into the saucepan and add the rum. Stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and boil steadily for 20 minutes, taking care to keep an eye on the marmalade to make sure that it doesn’t boil too rapidly.
  6. Meanwhile, sterilize 6 x 450g jars by washing them in hot soapy water, rinsing well, and 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!)
