Thanks to *Preserving Nature's Bounty* by Frances Bissell for this great recipe.
Make and share this Clementine Marmalade recipe from Food.com.
- Scrub & rinse clementines, place in water in a large soup pot (NOT aluminum).
- Squeeze lemon - reserve juice. Bundle the lemon seeds with cheesecloth and tie it off. Add bundle of seeds and the halved lemon to pot.
- Cover the pot and simmer for 2-3 hours until fruit is soft.
- Remove pot from heat, cool overnight; discard bundle of lemon seeds, do not strain liquid.
- Scoop fruit out of the liquid into a large bowl. Halve the clementines, scoop pulp and seeds (if any) into a strainer set over the pot that was used to boil the fruit. Save all peels. Rub pulp through strainer.
- Add sugar and lemon juice to pot. Heat gently, stirring until sugar dissolves, then boil for a few minutes.
- Meanwhile, finely slice clementine peel then stir into boiling sugar-lemon syrup. Continue boiling until marmalade reaches setting point (220*F at sea level) then remove pot from heat, skim foam, and let pot sit for 10-15 minutes to distribute peel evenly.
- Fill hot, sterilized jars; seal with two-part lids; process in boiling-water bath for 15 minutes (sea level).
- Label jars; store in cool, dark place.
- SUGGESTION: Use small decorative jars and make Gift Baskets (along with other kitchen preserves or mixes).
First time jam-maker, this was fantastic and simple. Highly recommended!
Made this a few weeks ago. Turned out amazing. I will definitely be saving this recipe and making it again!!
Most delicious marmalade I have made so far. Will make more before the clementines are out of season. Thanks for the recipe, Chris.
