Recipe by Mirj
This recipe was printed in the Jerusalem Post last week, and it's from Lynette Levius of Netanya, Israel. I haven't tried it yet, but plan to make a batch this weekend. February 2010: Since posting this recipe I've made it several times each winter (winter is citrus seaon here). It's a wonderful recipe, totally fail-proof as the title says. It's great on toast and makes a wonderful gift. I especially love a 50/50 orange/clementine mix, a rich citrus flavor with an intense orange color.

I made this recipe using oranges, lemons, grapefruit, and tangerines. I followed the instructions exactly and the marmalade was done in 30 minutes. I cooked the recipe over medium heat to begin with and then had to reduce it to medium low and it kept boiling well. I had to fish out seeds, so I would recommend taking them out before processing the fruit. The taste was quite bitter or tart. Not the flavor I was hoping for.
- 6 oranges (or any combination) or 6 grapefruits (or any combination) or 6 lemons (or any combination)
