Lemon Marmalade

When life gives you lemons, make marmalade! A citrus treat to store to use all year, our seasonal lemons make for a spreadable delight!

Ingredients

Storage: up to 2 years
Makes: 5 x 450g jars

  • 1kg Lemons
  • 75ml leftover lemon juice
  • 2kg demerara sugar

Method

  • Wash the lemons then half them and juice them and keep the squeezed halves.
  • Slice the squeezed lemons into medium to thick pieces and place into a bowl along with the lemon juice and 2.5L water. Leave the mixture to soak for 24 hours.

TIP: This helps release the pectin which helps the solution set.

  • Pour the mixture into a Kilner jam pan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook covered for 2 hours until the peel is soft and the marmalade has reduced.
  • Add in the sugar and lemon juice and mix well to dissolve the sugar.
  • Boil for about 20 minutes until setting point has been achieved then remove from the heat.
  • Leave the marmalade to cool down for ten minutes then stir slowly to diffuse any foam from the top.
  • Pour the marmalade into warm sterilized Kilner jars and store in a cool dark place.
