Orange marmalade has long been a favorite spread for breads. However, marmalades are used not only as a sweet spread, but also as a main ingredient in a variety of breads and desserts as well as in sweet and savory sauces for meat, poultry, and vegetables.

What a fun recipe. I had two large lemons, and many small oranges, so used 2 and 6. The total was 6 cups fruit when measured to add sugar. I had 9 cups of marmalade finished. It has the true marmalade taste, I cooked it 5 minutes longer for a firmer gel, and processed it 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.
