Easy Orange Marmalade Gift Jar
5 pounds ripe oranges
4 cups water
6 cups sugar
3 Kerr® pint jars (narrow or wide mouth) with sealable lids
Wash and dry the oranges, cut the ends off them and then quarter and chop them.
Combine fruit mixture and sugar in a Dutch oven (or a large pot); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 1 1/2 hours or until a candy thermometer registers 215°.
Also bring a small pot of water with the flat lids in it to a boil and leave it just boiling.
Pack hot marmalade into each hot sterilized jar one at a time, filling it to 1/4" from the top of the jar. Remove air bubbles; wipe jar rims. Cover at once with a metal lid, and screw on the band part of the lid.
Wrap jar with a ribbon and add the gift tag. Here is a tag created by the Smart & Final graphic designers that you can use.
Makes 3 pint sized jars of marmalade.
