Microwave citrus marmalade

    We can't always find marmalade easily here in Brittany so I've started making my own - usually from what's in the fruit bowl! It doesn't last long because it's usually scoffed each morning with croissants or baguette and butter. It's THE easiest recipe and I'm now converting our French neighbours to marmalade. Makes 4 x 400g jars

    Bretagne, France
    47 people made this


    • 1 kilo of your favourite citrus fruits (l used clementines and 1 large lemon)
    • 3 or 4 pieces of crystallised ginger ( optional)
    • 1 kilo of jam sugar


    1. Cut off any blemishes on the skin of the fruit and quarter. You can remove the pips but I never bother.
    2. Blitz the fruit in a blender/liquidiser together with the ginger.
    3. Place the fruit in a large microwave bowl and stir in the sugar until it has dissolved.
    4. Microwave for 15 minutes on 900W, stirring every 5 minutes.
    5. Allow to cool then spoon into sterilised jars.


    I used a Vitamix to blitz the fruit. Blitz in two halves pureeing the first half and leaving the second batch a little chunkier then add all to the bowl before stirring in the sugar. I used a 900W microwave.
