Orange Ginger Marmalade


This Orange Ginger Marmalade is a great combination of sweet and juicy oranges with warm and spicy ginger. I use the seeds and pith (the white membrane between the orange fruit and the peel) as a natural form of pectin which helps jam and marmalade to set.

To make this, I start by juicing the oranges. I then remove the pith and make a muslin package along with the seeds. I bring orange peel, orange juice and lemon juice to a boil with ginger in a large pan. Then I add the sugar and once it is ready, I place the marmalade in jars ready to use on toasted crumpets!

To make Orange Ginger Marmalade, you will need the following ingredients:

So, how to make Orange Ginger Marmalade?

Steps to make Orange Ginger Marmalade


Sterilize jars and place a saucer in the freezer


Run five jars through the dishwasher to sterilize them and then place them in a low oven until dry. Place a saucer in the freezer.


Squeeze oranges


Halve the oranges and squeeze the juice from them into a large saucepan. Save the pips for later.


Cut out the white pith


Slice each orange half in half again so that you have quarters. Using a metal spoon, scrape the pith from the peel and save this for later too. Using a square of muslin cloth, make a package for the seeds and pith by tying it into a bundle with string.


Bring orange peel, juices and ginger to a boil


Slice the orange peels into fine shreds and place it in the pan with the orange juice, lemon juice, chopped ginger and the bundle of pith and pips. Add water. Bring the mixture to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.


Remove muslin


Remove the muslin bag from the pot carefully and squeeze the liquid back into the pan.


Add sugar and bring to a boil


Add all of the sugar to the orange and ginger mixture and stir until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a rapid simmer. Skim any foam which appears on the top. Cook on medium heat until mixture thickens.


Check if it sets


Remove the saucer from the freezer and place a spoonful of marmalade on it.


Place the marmalade in jars


Remove the pan from the heat and leave the marmalade rest for 10 minutes. Transfer to the sterilized jars with a spoon or ladle. Wipe the rim of each jar and place the lids on tight.


Serve and store

Store in a cool dry cupboard. Once opened, store in the refrigerator.
