Marmalade Days in January...


Happy Friday evening everyone.. 
How are you this day?  

Posting clementine marmalade and marmalade loaf recipes for you.. 

Winter is the time to make this lovely treat .. 
It sure makes your house smell great, too.. 

Hope you enjoy the weekend.. 
God bless you my friends.. 




Clementine Marmalade
16 clementines 
4 cups water 
1 lemon halved 
7 cups white sugar.. 


  1. Scrub & rinse clementines, place in water in a large pot..
  2. Squeeze lemon - reserve juice. Bundle the lemon seeds with cheesecloth and tie it off. Add bundle of seeds and the halved lemon to pot.
  3. Cover the pot and simmer for 2-3 hours until fruit is soft.
  4. Remove pot from heat, cool overnight; discard bundle of lemon seeds, do not strain liquid.
  5. Scoop fruit out of the liquid into a large bowl. Halve the clementines, scoop pulp and seeds (if any) into a strainer set over the pot that was used to boil the fruit. Save all peels. Rub pulp through strainer.
  6. Add sugar and lemon juice to pot. Heat gently, stirring until sugar dissolves, then boil for a few minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, finely slice clementine peel then stir into boiling sugar-lemon syrup. Continue boiling until marmalade reaches setting point (220*F at sea level) then remove pot from heat, skim foam for 7 minutes..
  8. Fill sterilized jars and seal.. 
  9. I turn the jars upside down for about half an hour to make sure they seal and to distribute the peel... 
  10. Makes 7 x 250 gram jars..

  4. Faye, I love marmalade, but I am never happy with the way mine comes out, not being a big fan of "chunks" on my toast. However, this recipe is going to get a trial in my kitchen. I can imagine the flavour would be far more intense cooking the fruit whole like this. The photos of your finished product are gorgeous.

  10. This is such a good idea, I remember my grandmother seving orange marmalade on our toast when I was a child. I bet it was very pretty to look at! And the smell was yummy! I am going to look into making something very close to this, as I have plum juice to make into Jelly soon. I am going to try some marmalade!
    And your bread looks so good! Yummy is all I can say!
    Hope you are doing well and staying warm and blessed!
    Hugs, Roxy

  19. That Clementine Marmalade looks so delicious. I am in love with the texture and nutrient value is also great. I will try them very soon. I am also going to try homemade Green energy drinks. Hopefully my kids will drink it too as generally they don’t like such things!!
