Easy Lemon Ginger Marmalade

This Easy Lemon Ginger Marmalade is going to be a great addition to your breakfast table. It is zesty from the lemon and it has a warming sensation thanks to the ginger. I love a nice pot of jam or marmalade to spread on slices of hot buttered sourdough toast.

There is a bit of fiddly work to get the zest from the lemons at the start of this recipe but it is worth it! You will need to use a canner to preserve the marmalade and I recommend preparing the canner, jars, and lids before you start so that everything is ready to go when you need it.
