Marmalade with Orange and Lemon Peel

Ingredients:
  • Sweet orange – 1
  • Lemon – 1
  • Water – 400 ml
  • Sugar – 250 g
 Method:
  • Wash orange and lemon thoroughly with fresh water.
  • Pat dry the fruits, slice their outer layer (zest) using a peeler, cut the sliced outer layer into thin strips (about 1 inch) and keep aside.
  • Cut the fruits into half and squeeze the juice.
  • In a bowl, add juice, cut peel strips and 250 ml water.
  • In another bowl, add waste peel with white pith, seeds and remaining water.
  • Keep the two bowls in refrigerator overnight.
  • The next day pressure cook the contents separately.
  • Allow them to cool.
  • Squeeze out the juice from the contents with waste white pith and seeds.
  • Add this juice with real juice (with cut peel strips) and measure the total quantity.
  • Bring it to rapid boil, add sugar (adding sugar depends on your taste) and simmer for about 1-1 1/2 hours or till it reaches the jelly point.
  • Jelly point is judged by the thick consistency of the boiling liquid (when you take the juice in a spoon and tip, it forms a coating).
  • Turn off heat and allow them to cool.
  • Store in a sterilized container and refrigerate.
  • Serve with bread toast.
