  1. Step

    05 Min

    Cut the oranges and lemons in half and squeeze out juice into a preserving pan. Discard the lemon skins. Scoop out the pulp with a teaspoon and put into the centre of an 18-20cm square of muslin with the pips and any other bits from the squeezer, then secure, cut the orange peel into quarters and cut cut each quarter into chunky strips.

  2. Step

    05 Min

    Add the orange peel and the muslin bag to the pan with 2.25 liters cold water. Bring up to simmering point over a medium heat. Simmer gently, uncovered, for 2 hours or until the peel is soft and translucent and you can easily squash a piece to a pulp between thumb and forefinger. Meanwhile, put 4 saucers into the freezer to get really cold.

  3. Step

    20 Min

    Preheat the oven to 1400c/fan 1200c/gas 1. About 20 minutes before the end of the 2 hours. Cooking time, weight the sugar into a heatproof bowl, then warm it in the oven. This will help it to dissolve more quickly and easily.

  4. Step

    02 Min

    Remove the muslin bag from the pan and leave it until cool enough to handle. Squeeze as much liquid as you can from it into the preserving pan, then discard the bag. Add a warmed sugar to the pan and stir over a low heat until it has completely dissolved.

  5. Step

    5 Min

    Bring the mixture to a rapid, rolling boil, then boil hard until the setting point is reached. To achieve this, boil the mixture for 5 minutes, then spoon a blob of marmalade onto one of the chilled saucers and return to the fridge or freezer for a few minutes until cold. Push your finger across the surface-if it wrinkles up into a peak with no liquid running free, it has reached the setting point. If not, continue to boil, testing every 3 minutes. This may take up to 20 minutes.
