The delicious candied, jellied citrus zest that is homemade marmalade isn't come by without a bit of work. Most of it is rather pleasant if you like to be in the kitchen, however, and the results are divine. Before you start, click through the steps 15 looks like a lot, we know, but we've included pictures of each and every step so you'll know what to look for along the way to familiarize yourself with the process.
We find other types work fine. If you're lucky enough to have blood oranges on hand, they make beautiful marmalade! Many marmalade recipes will have you remove the peel, boil it once, twice, or three times, and then separate the tasty and colorful zest from the bitter white pith. Use a sharp peeler or paring knife to carefully cut off the zest from each piece of fruit. Leave as much of the bitter pith—the spongy white stuff between the bright zest and the fruit—behind as possible.
If you cut a piece of zest off with much pith attached to it, take the time to lay the piece of zest flat on the cutting surface and scrape the pith off.
Gather the strips of zest into manageable piles of 5 to 10 and chop the zest. If you like chunky marmalade, cut the pieces bite-size. For a more spreadable consistency, cut the zest into ribbon-like strips. Some marmalade recipes have you just juice the fruit, but we like to cut the pith off the orange or grapefruit sections and separate from the membranes and include whole fruit pieces in the marmalade.
To do this, first, you need to cut the ends from the fruits — being sure to cut away enough of each end to expose the fruit underneath the white pith.
Working with one orange or grapefruit at a time, set a fruit on its cut end and use a sharp knife to cut off the white pith from the outside. Be aggressive—you really don't want any of the pith left on the fruit, it really is terribly bitter. Working over a large bowl to catch the juices that will inevitably dribble down your hand, hold the peeled orange or grapefruit in one hand and use a sharp paring knife to cut the sections out, letting the sections drop into the bowl below.
This peel- and membrane-free sections are also called "supremes. When you come across seeds, pick them out and set them aside — you'll actually use them later! For more specific instructions, check out how to section citrus fruit.
Once you've cut the sections out of each fruit, you'll be left with a handful of the membrane that separates citrus sections. It may surprise you, but you'll be using these, so don't throw them away.
Before you set it aside, though, squeeze as much of the juice out of it, into the bowl with the sections or "supremes," as you can. This isn't so much a step, as a check-in. Put the zest, fruit and accumulated juices, 4 cups of water, and 6 cups of sugar into a large, heavy pot. Stir to dissolve the sugar a bit and bring everything to a boil. If you plan to hot-water process the jars of marmalade, fill a canning kettle with water and bring it to a boil. Note that you don't have to process the jars, they will keep just fine in a fridge.
Processing will allow you to store the jars in a cupboard instead of the fridge. It may seem weird that we've had you set the icky membranes and bitter seeds aside, but these parts of citrus contain pectin, which is a natural thickener and is what will "set" the marmalade. You can use a pre-made "jelly bag" of muslin, but we like to simply put the membranes and seeds in a double-layer of cheesecloth. Lay a large double-layer of cheesecloth in a medium bowl and add the membranes and seeds on top.
Tie the ends of the cheesecloth together so the membranes and seeds are held inside to make a "pectin bag. For the final marmalade to set, it needs to be brought up to F and held at that temperature for at least 5 minutes. A candy thermometer is very helpful with this, but not necessary. It is totally possible to make marmalade without one, however, you'll just need to do a lot more of the "set tests" in the next step.
If you plan to hot-water process the marmalade at the end, use this time to sterilize the jars and lids by submerging them in the boiling water in the canning kettle for 10 minutes. After the marmalade has reached F and stayed there for 5 minutes, do a "set test" by dropping a dollop of the mixture on one of the chilled plates you set in the freezer earlier.
Remove the cheesecloth pectin bag from the marmalade—use a large spoon to press the bag against the side of the pot to get as much of the marmalade out of the bag as possible. Discard cheesecloth bag and its contents.
Remove pot from heat and let marmalade mixture sit for about 5 minutes before transferring it to jars. Give the marmalade a good stir to distribute the pieces of zest throughout the mixture.
This recipe makes almost exactly 3 pints - put any extra in a small jar or bowl to cover and keep in the fridge it isn't safe to process jars that aren't fairly full.
Put lids on jars. If canning, use a jar rack if you have one, to lower the filled jars into the boiling water in the canning kettle. Make sure there is at least an inch of water over the jars. Boil for ten minutes, lift jars out of the water and let cool. Marmalade will keep, in a cool but dry dark place for up to a year. Once opened, keep jars in the fridge. There are plenty of delicious ways to use marmalade, but our favorite is to spread it on these homemade buttermilk scones.

The making of jellies and other preserves is an old and popular process, providing a means of keeping fruits far beyond their normal storage life and sometimes making use of blemished or off-grade fruits that may not be ideal for fresh consumption. In jelly making, the goal is to produce a clear, brilliant gel from the juice of a chosen fruit. Jams are made from the entire fruit, including the pulp, while preserves are essentially jellies that contain whole or large pieces. Marmalade , usually made from citrus fruit, is a jellylike concentrate of prepared juice and sliced peel. The essential ingredients for a successful preserve are sugar , acid , and pectin.
How to Make Marmalade
The fruity, fine delicacies also deliver the energy you need to start off the day. Once you take a look at the labels, you may find differing terms: There are jams, jellies, marmalades and fruit spreads. But what exactly do these terms mean? There is also a European Jam Directive which differs slightly from the German one. All that may be used to flavour jams is vanilla, vanilla essence and vanillin. Also spirits, herbs and spices. We differentiate between extra jam and jam, and extra jelly and jelly, depending on the stipulated minimum fruit content.

Jam-making conjures up images of domestic idylls, an escape to the mountains to live on your wits, and jam. The seemingly simple mixture of fruit and sugar held together by a web of pectin strands can be both beautiful and maddening. A jam worthy of a Women's Institute rosette , however, might have a nature so tender that it quivers when cut with a spoon to reveal sparkling, ruby-like faces. This sweet treat was named late, in the early s, but "jam" captures the difference between it and the in my opinion inferior jelly. Jellies are made from homogeneous fruit juice with none of the wonderful texture-giving "crushed" fruit. Jam as we know it only seems to have emerged in the 19th century. It took a cheap and reliable source of sugar from the West Indies to make jams affordable. Before this, sugar was considered a spice and the price in Europe was such that only the richest could afford it. Preserves made from sugar were too precious to spread thickly on toast.

These products differ in gel consistency, ingredients and how the fruit is prepared. They are easy to make at home. Because of high sugar content, jams, marmalades, preserves and conserves are mainly a source of calories. One level tablespoon of these products contains 55 to 70 calories and should be used sparingly by people concerned about controlling their weight or sugar intake. Paraffin does not form a complete seal and does not protect against mold growth and toxin production in jelly.

Contents - Previous - Next. Preservation is not only determined by the osmotic pressure of sugar solutions but also by the water activity values in the liquid phase, which can be lowered by sugar addition; and by evaporation down to 0.
The most common sweetener used is sugar, but honey, concentrated juice and other sweeteners may also be used. The most common gelling agent used in the production is pectin. Other raw materials used are fresh and frozen fruit. Please see Table 1 for the products and their product codes.
Fruit preserves are preparations of fruits , vegetables and sugar , often stored in glass jam jars and Mason jars. Many varieties of fruit preserves are made globally, including sweet fruit preserves, such as those made from strawberry or apricot , and savory preserves, such as those made from tomatoes or squash. The ingredients used and how they are prepared determine the type of preserves; jams, jellies, and marmalades are all examples of different styles of fruit preserves that vary based upon the fruit used. In English, the word, in plural form, "preserves" is used to describe all types of jams and jellies.
