  • 6 no oranges
  • 1 1/2 cups fine sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cointreau


  • Wash the oranges thoroughly. Quarter the fruit, remove pith and seeds and then slice thinly.
  • In a saucepan place the cut fruit, cover with water and bring to a boil. Strain and then return to pan. 
  • Add the sugar, salt , one cup water and bring to a boil. 
  • Reduce the heat to medium low and stew the fruit till the temperature reaches 220F or 103C on a candy thermometer 30 -35 minutes. Stir occasionally to make sure the fruit breaks down evenly. 
  • Alternatively to check doneness for the marmalade take out a tsp and put in a frozen plate and see if it looks like it has a bounce. If yes then its done.
  • Take off the heat and add the Cointreau. Mix well cool and then fill in clean sterilized jars.
  • This marmalade keeps well in the fridge for up to a month.
