FOOD: Recipe to make Homemade Orange Jam and Homemade Marmalade

Marmalade is one of the most loved, but unlike jam where fruit pieces are added, marmalade is only made from citrus fruits. Here is a recipe you can try if you want to learn how to make your own marmalade. Perhaps marmalade used to be your favorite while growing up. We hope you enjoy making this and also enjoy eating it after.


5 oranges

1 lemon

2 cups sugar (500ml)

1 liter water


1. Squeeze the orange juice out of the oranges. Put the orange juice aside.

2. After squeezing the orange juice, remove the inside of the orange (the part of the orange we eat) and put them in a separate bowl. Throw away the seeds (not needed).

3. Take the orange peel (skin) and remove the white part of the orange using a sharp knife or a peeler.

Make sure you completely remove the white part of the orange, otherwise the jam or marmalade will be bitter.

4. Finely grate the orange peel or use a knife to cut it into very thin, small pieces.

5. In a saucepan or pot add 1 liter of water, 2 cups of sugar, freshly squeezed lemon juice, finely grated or chopped orange peel, the inside of an orange and the freshly squeezed orange juice.

6. Place on a stove on medium heat. Stir continuously until the water reduces, and a thick consistency is formed.

7. While the mixture is hot, transfer it into a jar. Let it cool off, then refrigerate it overnight.

Note: the same mixture was used to make the jam and the marmalade. After cooking, divide the mixture into 2 jars.

For the jam: When the mixture has thickened and while still hot, pour it into a blender and blend it until smooth. Transfer into a jar, then refrigerate overnight.
