How To Make Lemon Marmalade


  •  1 lb lemons (4 medium-sized or 3 large)
  •  2.5 pints of water
  •  2.5 lb sugar


  1. Cut or mince the lemons finely, removing the pips.
  2. Soak the peel and pulp overnight in the water, together with the pips, which should be tied up carefully in a piece of muslin.
  3. After soaking, put the fruit, water and pips in a covered pan and simmer slowly until the peel is quite soft. This should take approximately 1.5 hours.
  4. Take out the bag of pips, stir in sugar and lemon juice.
  5. Bring marmalade to the boil and boil rapidly in an uncovered pan until setting point is reached. This will take aprroximately 20 minutes.
