Seville Orange Marmalade

Seville oranges arrive in the shops in early to mid January and make wonderful marmalade.

1kg Seville Oranges
2 Lemons
1.5 kg sugar

Wash fruit and boil in sufficient water to cover fruit until soft (about 2 hours). Allow to cool. Make up liquid to 1 litre per kg of oranges and place in jam pan. Halve fruit acrossways and de-pip using a pointed implement keeping the pips. Remove pith with a spoon and keep. When all the fruit has been de-pithed either sieve or chop the pith in a processor and add to the liquid. Halve empty peel halves again and slice thinly and add. Put pips in a cloth and add to the jam pan. Add sugar and boil until setting point is reached. Pour into pre-heated jars and screw the lids down whilst still hot. Makes about 7 jars/kg oranges.
