Thanks. I think I'll give this a try. Citrus fruit is expensive in the US right now, but buying a few fruits is probably cheaper than buying an equivalent amount of marmalade, and making it this way you can be sure of what the ingredients are and that there are no preservatives in it.
There was much rejoicing!

Glad you had fun! My only reservation is dietary. Jam has a lot of sugar. If the fruit is okay I'd rather eat it than make jam with it. And as I don't eat bread I don't have much use for jam. Occasionally I stir some through my vanilla yoghurt if I'm getting bored with the flavour. I made mango jam at the peak of the season in October. Enough to get me through to next mango season!
it is so easy to make in a big bowl chop 4 oranges and 2 lemon that you have washed yes the whole thing with the outside too fill the bowl with water and put in fridge change the water 2 times a day leave them 2 days like that with water changing after remove all seeds puree them count how many cups the puree is and add the same amount of sugar bring to a boil no water when ready put in glass jars and when cool enjoy made it and loved it it is so simple and easy if you try it post here would love to hear your idea about jam
