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.
