Cranberry Marmalade Recipe For You!

Good morning everyone, I posted a picture on Facebook and Instagram of some cranberry marmalade that I had made for Christmas and had a few requests for the recipe so here it is, enjoy!

Cranberry Marmalade

2 oranges
1 lemon
1 1/2 cups water
4 cups fresh cranberries
6 1/2 cups sugar
 1 pouch (85 ml or just shy of 3 oz) liquid pectin

Cut the oranges and lemon into quarters and then slice very thinly crosswise.  Put the thinly sliced oranges and lemons into a large (at least 12 cup) microwaveable bowl with the water.  Cover and microwave on high for 20 - 25 minutes until the rinds are soft, stopping to stir the fruit once or twice as it cooks.  Add the fresh cranberries and microwave on high, covered, for a further 2 minutes.  Stir in the sugar and microwave UNcovered on high for 12 - 14 minutes until the mixture boils, stirring as necessary to prevent boil over.  Add the pectin once the marmalade has reached the boiling point and stir for 5 minutes longer, skimming off any foam as you stir.  Pour the marmalade into sterilized canning jars, seal with prepared lids and screw bands.  Process the marmalade for 15 minutes in a hot water bath for longer storage or you can keep it unprocessed in the fridge for about a month.  Makes approximately 8 cups of marmalade.

It is very delicious and looks lovely on the Christmas morning table, such a wonderful red colour!  Enjoy and happy holidays everyone!
