Microwave Orange Pineapple Marmalade

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

A friend of mine gave me a few bags of oranges from her tree, so I went on a hunt for recipes using oranges and this is one of them. It's so simple and it's really good.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large oranges, washed,quartered,seeded,skin left on (navels are preferred)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained (need some vitamin C...drink the juice, you won't be needing it)
  • 4 cups sugar (I used 2 cups sugar/2 cups splenda)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  1. Put quartered oranges into food processor that is fitted with a metal blade and process until ground.
  2. In micro safe 2 1/2 qt dish, combine oranges, pineapple, sugar and lemon juice.
  3. Stir and mix it well.
  4. Micro on high for 10 minutes or until it boils, stirring half way thru.
  5. Continue to micro on high for another 3 minutes.
  6. Cool, stirring occasionally.
  7. Can be kept in refrigerator for up to a month and can be frozen for up to 6 months.

Took a long time to microwave, but at least that makes it 'easy' to make. I cut the recipe in half, and for a first time making marmalade it turned out well.

Okay, here is what I did. I didn't have any crushed pineapple but I did have a 15 oz. can of pineapple chunks. So...I took my navel oranges, took my drained pineapple chunks and threw them into my food processor. After they were ground I only placed 2 cups of sugar, the lemon juice and the pulp into my dish and followed the instructions. Excellent product! Will make again and again. Thanks for a great recipe
