Oh, I actually loved making this marmalade. The colours and aromas have been fabulous. Even should you’ve by no means canned earlier than, please give this a attempt. You can be very happy with your efforts! I bought the identical response from every one that tasted it…that lengthy, low, “Wooooow.” That’s when you bought it proper. 🙂
After peeling, I positioned the oranges in a meals processor and gave them a spin. Then I poured the juice by way of a strainer and pressed on the pulp with a picket spoon to get “each single drop of juice.” This was a great technique. Urgent oranges unprocessed by way of a strainer appeared like a troublesome plan. I consider I bought extra juice this manner, too.
I used the picket spoon technique for testing however I solely ran my finger throughout the again as soon as. It’s very popular! I used a spatula rather than my finger for the remainder of the checks. I’d advise dripping a bit liquid on a small plate and utilizing a finger substitute to run by way of it to check. My picket spoon has a shine to it, and it was very onerous to see what precisely was occurring on every take a look at.
I’d advocate utilizing a funnel for pouring the marmalade into jars. I didn’t have one, however was capable of vogue a “cone” out of parchment paper to ensure the jars stayed clear whereas filling. The marmalade is a really sticky, honey-like consistency and likewise very popular.
