Ingredients

Method

1.In large bowl, combine limes, oranges and water. Stand. covered, overnight.
2.Pour fruit mixture into a large saucepan. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 50-60 minutes, until rind is tender.
3.Measure fruit mixture and return to saucepan with 1 cup of sugar for each cup of fruit.
4.Stir mixture over low heat until sugar dissolves. Add brandy and bring to the boil. Boil, uncovered, without stirring, for 40-45 minutes, until marmalade sets to a “gel” when tested (see tip). Remove from heat and stand 10 minutes.
5.Pour into warm sterilised jars and seal immediately.

Equal amounts of sugar and fruit must be used to achieve a good gel. Test if jam is ready by placing a teaspoon of it on a cold plate. Touch with your fingertip – if the top wrinkles, the jam is ready to jar.
