Citrus Marmalade The Pacific Way

Citrus marmalade is a delicious and tangy spread that is perfect for toast, scones, and other baked goods. It is also relatively easy to make at home with just a few ingredients. Here is a simple recipe for citrus marmalade that you can try at home:


  • 3 cups of thinly sliced citrus fruit (such as oranges, lemons, or grapefruits)
  • 3 cups of water
  • 4 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice


  1. Wash and thinly slice the citrus fruit, removing any seeds.
  2. In a large pot, combine the sliced fruit, water, and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 45 minutes, or until the fruit is very soft.
  3. Stir in the sugar and bring the mixture back to a boil, stirring constantly until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Increase the heat to high and bring the mixture to a rolling boil. Boil for about 20-30 minutes, or until the marmalade has reached the desired thickness. To test the thickness, place a small spoonful of the marmalade on a chilled plate and place it in the refrigerator for a few minutes. If the marmalade wrinkles when you push it with your finger, it is ready.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat and let the marmalade cool for a few minutes. Then, ladle the marmalade into sterilized jars and seal with a lid. Store the jars in the refrigerator for up to 3 months, or in the freezer for up to a year.

Enjoy your homemade citrus marmalade!
