Another one of my mom's recipes. This is wonderful spread on toast or biscuits.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 quarts peeled chopped peaches
  • 34 cup thinly sliced orange rind
  • 1 12 cups chopped orange sections
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 5 cups sugar


  1. Add all ingredients to a large pot; slowly bring to a boil; stir frequently until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Boil for approximately 40 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently to keep from sticking.
  3. Take pot off of stove; skim off foam with a metal spoon.
  4. Quickly pour marmalade into hot sterized jars, leave 1/4 inch headspace.
  5. Cover immediately with metal lids and screw on bands tight.
  6. Process in boiling water bath for 15 minutes.

WOW! I ran out of oranges, so I threw in 1/4 of a lemon sliced real thin. I also didn't peel the peaches. I got impatient waiting for it to cook and threw in a pkg of low sugar pectin after 30 minutes of boiling. Jelled up real nice and what a flavor.

Really lovely flavor. I didn't peel the peaches, just pitted and cut them up into @ 1/2 to 1-inch pieces. Turned out great and will make this again. Thank you.
