Orange Golden Marmalade

Selam Everybody....... Merhaba from Turkey...

This week is citrus season in my place. I can get cheapest price for mostly citrus family in farm market. Don't ask me how many kilos I bought.... I looovvveee orange, lemon, or any citrus. They are best fruits for vit C source and also my best favorite for making dessert.

My husband likes to drink simply fresh orange juice, no more adding sugar or any other sweetener... But I still have big problem with my kid.....aaarrrgghhh.. We keep "fighting" whenever I ask her to finish her juice. So for her sometimes I mix with yoghurt and honey or sometimes I made orange frozen yoghurt.

Since I bought many kilos orange few days ago now I am thinking and open my "orange recipe list" on my computer file.
And this golden marmalade from Annabel Langbein is my 1st choice to use my orange stock.

It's simple and quick to make (unless for soaking time). And the marmalade turns beautifully yummy. I love the exact sweet on this recipe. I only use orange and lemon for this recipe and skip the whisky cause we don't consume any alcohol.

If you have orange and don't have any idea what to do... try this too. Keep in sterilized jar it will stand in your fridge for weeks even months.


  • 2 grapefruit, 2 oranges and 1 lemon (750 g mixed citrus in total)--> I use orange and 2 lemon 750 g in total
  • 6 cups* water
  • 6 cups** sugar
  • ½ cup whisky (optional)--> I didn't use it
(*) 1 cup=250 ml
(**) 1 cup= 230 g

Halve citrus and slice as thinly as possible. Place in a large stainless-steel or enamel pot, add water and soak overnight. The next day, bring to a boil then turn down the heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour or until citrus is tender.

Add sugar and stir to dissolve, then bring to a boil and boil hard for 40 minutes. Add whisky, if using, and continue to boil until it reaches setting point (about another 40 minutes). To test for setting, spoon a little onto a plate. If a film forms on the surface, it is ready. While still hot, pour into sterilized jars and seal with sterilized lids. It will keep for months.

Note: Don’t use an aluminium pot, as the acid in the fruit with corrode it.
