Citruslove: Homemade Orange Marmalade

Easy-to-make, delicious, and great for gifts, I love making this homemade orange marmalade when I have a surplus of citrus.

[wprm-recipe-jump]

It’s time for the start of another bloghop, and boy am I excited for this one! For the month of January the bloghop theme is citrus, which is very exciting. I have a small Valencia orange tree that’s finally starting to ripen, a Meyer lemon tree that’s loaded down with lemons, and a lime tree that’s fruiting; so this couldn’t be any more perfect.

Here’s a list of all of the people participating in the Bloghop this month!

Please join in on the #citruslove fun by linking up any citrus recipe from the month of January 2012. Don’t forget to link back to this post, so that your readers know to come stop by the #citruslove event! The twitter hashtag is #citruslove :).
Making this Orange Marmalade is wonderfully simple, albeit a little time consuming. I ended up dividing my marmalade between two very small jars as gifts, but this recipe would fit perfectly into a 12 ounce Ball Jar. I definitely was inspired to make this by my Orange Marmalade Thumbprint cookies from last month, although there are a couple changes to the ingredients. 🙂

Homemade Orange Marmalade

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Canning Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Easy-to-make, delicious, and great for gifts, I love making this homemade orange marmalade when I have a surplus of citrus.

Ingredients

  • 4 Cups Peeled Orange Slices, De-seeded
  • 1/2 tsp. Orange Zest
  • 1/2 Cup Organic White Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Arrowroot Powder or Cornstarch
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Water

Instructions

  1. Take the orange slices and place them into a blender or a food processor and blend until slightly chunky. Pour the contents of the blender into a large sauce pan, over medium heat.
  2. Add in orange zest, sugar, arrowroot powder, lemon juice and water, stir together. Simmer orange mixture, stirring occasionally, for roughly 25 minutes or until the mixture has the same consistency as jam. While the marmalade is thickening, sanitize your jar(s) by boiling it in a large pot for 15 minutes.
  3. When the marmalade is ready, pour it into the jar, seal with lid, then place it in a canning pot (or just a large enough pot so that it can be covered with water) that is filled with boiling water. Boil the jars for 10-15 minutes to seal them. Decorate them however you want, then gift them!

Spiced Cupcakes with Blood Orange Frosting | Vegan Yack Attack

Saturday 25th of February 2012

[...] The cake part of these delightful treats is filled with just the right amount of spice so that it is aromatic, but not overbearing. It’s fluffy and light, with no oil in the batter, while the frosting is creamy and rich with a slight tang from the blood orange marmalade. You can use any orange marmalade that you prefer, I ended up making my own using this recipe. [...]
