Common Questions About Marmalade

WHAT TYPE OF ORANGES DO I USE FOR MARMALADE?

Plain seedless oranges or navel work great. However, Seville oranges, are the gold standard, to me they are a little too bitter but purists love them

SUBSTITUTE CLEMENTINES OR LEMONS?

Of Course, or you can even mix them for a unique experience.

CAN THIS BE HALVED OR DOUBLED?

Absolutely, just the amounts accordingly.

CAN THIS BE FROZEN?

The prepared jam can be frozen in an airtight container after cooking and cooling.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH MARMALADE?

I love to serve this on the traditional toast, with my Cranberry Orange White Chocolate Biscotti or on top of Baked Salmon with Asparagus

Ingredients

  • 6 oranges
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  • Wash your oranges. I did this by cleaning them with hot water and dish soap.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your oranges in half. With your half, lay the orange flat side down, and then slice the oranges very thin.
  • Place your sliced oranges, sugar and water in the instant pot.
  • Close the lid on your instant pot and make sure the sealing valve is closed.
  • Set your instant pot to high-pressure for 10 minutes. When the time is completed, allow the instant pot to natural release until the pin has dropped and pressure has been fully released.
  • Take the lid off the instant pot, and set your instant pot to sauté mode.
  • Stir often as your sugar can burn. Continue to sauté your marmalade until the temperature reaches 225°F. Once it has, turn your instant pot off.
  • Transfer your marmalade to a bowl, or canning jar and allow it to cool on the counter. Once it has completely cooled, put a lid on it, and keep in the fridge.

  1. I am sugar intolerant but I love orange marmalade. Do you think it would work with a sugar substitute like Swerve as long as the 1 for 1 measurements are the same?
