Philly and I went to see Paddington Bear at the movies and thoroughly enjoyed it. That also brought to my mind Orange Marmalade!
I called the Ball Brand Home Canning Fresh Preserving to ask if they had a recipe for the marmalade for use in their jam maker. The representative said no, but they had been asked several times for it.
My Orange Marmalade Recipe
- 2 2/3 Cups Orange Pulp, Zest and any of the juice you may have.
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 3 Tablespoons Ball RealFruit Classic Pectin
- 1/2 teaspoon Butter
- 3 1/3 Cups of Granulated Sugar
Take a hand grater/zester like this. I own a pink one that I use quite a lot by Microplane.
Microplane Zester/Grater left over peeling and membranes Jam & Jelly makernot used in marmalade
- Use a zester/grater to zest each orange. Do Not go too deep into the white part.
- Take a knife cut the top and bottom of the orange away. Making sure to cut all the white away.
- Take the knife and run down the sides of the orange cutting all the white off.
- Take the knife and cut the orange pulp out of their sections. Throw away the membranes. **Video Example here.
- Remember to measure exactly 2 & 2/3 cups of orange and zest.
To the Jam Maker
- Sprinkle the Pectin evenly over the bottom of the pot fitted with the stirrer.
- Add the orange/pulp-zest evenly over the pectin in pot
- Press the jam button** it will default to 21 minutes
- Press Enter
- Wait 4 minutes...the jam maker will have 4 short beeps to let you know it's time to gradually add the sugar. Cover with the lid. The jam maker will cook you jam and then beep to let you know it is finished.
- Press cancel on jam maker and unplug
- Take a hot pad to remove the middle stirrer in the maker and set aside.
Carefully remove with jar lifters after the 10 minutes is up and place on a towel on counter away from drafts.. Cover with dry clean kitchen towel. Do not disturb for at least 24 hours. Check for seal and then store in pantry for later use. *I advise after 48 hours remove the screw band to prevent false seal. Store not stacking on top of each other for safe canned goods.
This recipe will make 4 half pint jelly jars of marmalade.
I went online to find Paddington Bear with his hand in the marmalade.
That made for a cute sticker to put on the jars and as you can see
it made P happy!
