Absolutely delish. Set well and I used Turkish Apricots, so the color was a bit dark-but tasted fine. My neighbors loved it!

Wonderful! I made this 3 weeks ago before I went to England, and it was nicely matured and mellow when I got back! The addition of the apricots makes this a VERY subtle marmalade and we loved the extra apricoty taste in addition to the normal tangy flavours of oranges and lemons. I managed to get 6 jars yield and I put aside a whole day for this - turn on your favourite music and relax whilst you chop, mince and stir!! A great recipe and now I am set up for a few weeks with my breakfast marmalade! Made for the Comfort Food Photo Tag game, 2008. Thanks NoraMarie for posting a keeper! FT:-)
