Ingredients and Recipe Tips:

  • Orange Zest: To make the zest, use the large side of a cheese grater to grate the clean orange rinds. Be careful not to grate the white pith of the orange, as it is bitter.
  • Orange:  To get the most soft part of the orange, cut the oranges in half and use a spoon to scoop out all the pulp and juice.  Then discard the rinds (refer to the picture above).
  • Cranberries:  I like to use a blender or food processor to chop the cranberries (see the image above).  You can also use a knife, but it’s a little more tedious, so if you have one, use a blender of some kind.
  • When is the marmalade done?  This marmalade should only take about 15 minutes to cook.  It’s done when it’s sticky and the consistency of soft jam.  It’s important to remember that it will also thicken as it cools.
  • Storage:  Keep in a jar in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
  • This recipe is a great way to use up fresh cranberries!
