I've been wanting to make some marmalade for quite a while but have not found the time to make it.  So this morning I decided today was the day!

Have you seen these easy to make cans from Lakeland ?

The oranges are prepared for you and all you need to do is add sugar and water....simple

First off I warmed my clean jam jars in the oven

I emptied the tin of oranges into my jam pan and added 4lbs of sugar and 3/4 pint of water.

Stirred the mixture until the sugar melted

Brought it to a rolling boil and boiled for about 18 minutes, and this is what I ended up with....jars of delicious marmalade.

I'm going to take my mum a jar when I visit tomorrow....hope she enjoys it spread on her toast.


  1. This looks very satisfying, I'd like to try it too

    1. I both enjoy making it and love to eat is very easy to make
