Cointreau Marmalade
Author:
Recipe type: Marmalade
Ingredients
  • 1 kg oranges
  • 600 g (2 ⅔ cups) caster sugar
  • ¼ cup Cointreau (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place the oranges in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and cook for 1 hour, until soft. Remove the oranges and reduce the cooking liquid to 80 ml (⅓ cup). When the oranges have cooled, peel them, discarding the pips, and purée the flesh. Strain the purée and add it to the cooking liquid.
  2. Finely shred the peel – you’re aiming to get 100 g – and add it to the cooking liquid, along with the caster sugar. Bring to the boil, add Cointreau (if using) and reduce heat. Cook until it achieves a syrupy consistency, stirring frequently.
  3. Test for setting point by putting a teaspoon of marmalade onto a chilled plate. Tip the plate; if the marmalade runs, cook for a further 5 minutes, then try again. Pour into sterilised jars while still hot and enjoy as soon as it’s cool.
