As usual i dont like to add pectin or preservatives in my jam..I make it with just fruit puree, sugar and a dash of lemon juice. The lemon acts as a preservative. In this marmalade the preservatives is sugar and lemon..

Now i have a whole jar of marmalade in my fridge. I will be using those in my baking and spreading over my buttered toast..YUM...Hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..

  1. Thank you for this wonderful sharing..

    I got lost on the portion where you take out the frozen plate and spoon the marmalade and fix with your hand...can you help me understand the process and step. I am unclear from the detail steps and pictures shown...

  2. @WeeCkwhen u pour the syrup in the frozen plate, it will cool down instantly and show you the consistency. When u bring it together using your finger, it will form like a soft jelly or spreadable jam consistency. It will clearly show you the jam consistency.

  3. Hey.. Great recipe.. How long can you keep it?

  4. @Madhuru can keep it for more than 4 to5 months in fridge

  5. Hi Aarthi, I tried the marmalade and it turned out tasty. Thanks. But the problem is I think I over cooked the syrup. It has become thick and slightly crystallized. Please help soon. Any solutions?
