I'm not sure exactly how to rate this recipe. The marmalade is good, but it took a lot of googling and posting to see how to make it. The recipe calls for 3 times the amount of water to fruit. I went on a 1-1 ratio and am pleased with the results. I would have had 27 cups water to my 9 cups of fruit, and that just wasn't right. The 9 cup of fruit and juice and 9 cups of water resulted in 13 cups of liquid after the first simmering. 13 cups of sugar turned out to be exactly 5 lbs. And, most importantly, this did not produce 3 jelly jars but 12. My neighbours are going to love me.! Sorry I can't give it more, Sharon.


  1. Scrub limes and lemons, then cut in halves and remove seeds.
  2. Cut into thin slices.
  3. Measure fruits and juices and add equal amount of water.
  4. Soak for 12 hours.
  5. Simmer for 20 mins.
  6. then let stand 12 hours.
  7. Add 3/4 cup sugar for every cup of fruit/juice.
  8. Cook the mixture until jellying stage is reached.
  9. Pour into sterilized jars, leaving 1/4" margin at top and seal with lids.
  10. Cool on metal rack and store in a dry, cool place.
