  • 800 g oranges, 500g (1 lb 2 oz) net weight (see note 1)
  • 900 g pomelos, 500g (1 lb 2 oz) net weight (see note 2)
  • 2 lemons
  • 800 g sugar
  • 300 g crystallised (candied) ginger, finely chopped


  • Peel the oranges and pomelo, removing all the white with the rind. Slice the fruit into rounds 1 cm (a little less than ½") thick. Remove the seeds and cut the slices into quarters.
  • Rinse and brush the lemons under cold water and cut them in very thin slices, removing the seeds as you go.
  • In a 5 litre (5 qt) preserving pan, combine the citrus fruits, sugar, and ginger.
  • Bring to a simmer, then turn the preparation into a large bowl. Cover with a round of baking paper and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  • Pour the mixture into the preserving pan and bring to a boil, stirring gently. Skim and continue cooking on high heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring continuously (see note 3). Check the set.
  • Put the jam into jars immediately and seal.


  1. Pink fleshed cara cara oranges are a really good choice of fruit for this marmalade preserve.
  2. You can substitute grapefruits for pomelos.
  3. When the mixture is boiling it will produce a froth on the top which needs to be removed to ensure a clear marmalade. The easiest way of doing this is to regularly skim it with a slotted spoon.
  4. The yield for this recipe is about 2 litres (4 pints) of marmalade.
