Does your family enjoy to eat marmalade?
Sister Mary Heremaia shows how to make delicious marmalade from your lemons, oranges and grapefruit.
These step-by-step pictures will guide you to learn how to make marmalade just as if you were in the kitchen with her.
Collect glass jars and lids.
Put jars in hot water to remove labels.
Secret#1. Put butter on the remaining glue. Scrub it off with a Goldylocks pot mit. The butter makes the glue come off.
Secret #2. A spot of detergent removes the sticky film. Sterilize jars in oven at 120 degrees for 20 minutes.
Weigh out 1.515 kg of fruit. i.e. Grapefruit + 2 lemon; or 4 grapefruit + 2 lemon + 2 oranges; or oranges + 3 lemons.
Slice in half this way to expose all pips. Remove pips.
Slice. Then dice.
Add to pot of water. Download recipe for amounts. Sterilise lids.
Add a nob of butter. This dissolves the residue off the side of the pot.
Place sterile jars on bench ready to fill.
Pour into jars short of the top. Not completely full.
Nearly fill jars. Use this Goldhealth jar opener to aid you if you have sore joints or arthritis. Mary says they help her wrists a lot.
Screw on the lids. For jars without lids, use Waugh Jam Jar and Preserve Covers.
Place face down in hot water. On jar wet side up. Secure with a rubber band.
Labels from the $2 shop. That’s how Mary makes her delicious marmalade.
