As a pastry chef I am always dubious of recipes. I tried this recipe, and once I figured out the amount of pectin, I was blown away with the result. This is just fantastic and I highly recommend it. I made a double batch today to give away for Christmas. Regarding the pectin: in Canada we don't have bottles of pectin, but have pouches of liquid pectin. The recipe requires 3 ounces of liquid pectin (or 1 pouch of Certo liquid pectin). Thanks for a fantastic recipe!!!
This is the easiest and most delicious marmalade! And it is so beautiful! I had a little more fruit than the five cups called for and could not bear to waste it, so I proceeded with the recipe, using 1/2 a pouch of fruit pectin. It is just perfect - just sweet enough with that tangy bite from the citrus peel at the end. I love this recipe! I got 9 1/2 pints and a little custard cup left over that got "tasted" right up, almost before it cooled.
Great recipe. I used a 12oz bag of frozen cranberries and 1/2 of a pouch of pectin. (I don't see bottles of pectin anymore here) This set up nicely and is so pretty, also tastes very yummy! Thanks for posting.
What a wonderful change from the usual marmalade. Very, very tasty, and oh so pretty. I ground the citrus in the food processor. I usually use a zester when making marmalade, but thought I'd try something different. I'm very pleased with how this turned out. I ended up with 9 half pints and a jelly jar. Thanks for posting such a lovely recipe.
After seeing PaulaG,s photo I decided to make it. Its really good.
Made this up,but rather than putting the cranberries in whole, I did a rough chop of them in the food processor. This made up easy, and delicious. Thank You for the lovely recipe.
Hot or cold this is a wonderful marmalade. I really enjoyed the tartness of the cranberries. The oranges and lemon were finely chopped and the cranberries had been frozen. When I measured the fruit I was shy the 5 cups and added additional water. I made this for Christmas gifts and instead of 1/2 pints; they were ladled into 1/2 cup jars. They were then processed in my pasta pan with insert 7 at a time.
This is cooling at home as I type...made it before work this am...I snuck a taste of the leftovers jar before I left and it was wonderful...kind of tart/tangy/sweet....very complex and has a great mouthfeel! Thanks Sharon!
