Ingredients

Lemon and lime marmalade
  • 4 lemons, quartered, thinly sliced, seeds removed
  • 4 limes, quartered, thinly sliced, seeds removed
  • 4 cup water
  • 2 1/2 cup white sugar

Method

Lemon and lime marmalade
  • 1
    Place fruit and water in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Boil rapidly 25-30 minutes, until fruit is very tender.
  • 2
    Reduce heat to low and add sugar, stirring until dissolved.
  • 3
    Increase heat and boil, without stirring, further 10-15 minutes, until set when tested. Pour into sterilised jars and seal while still hot.

Notes

If setting takes too long, it may be that the fruit is slightly overripe or underripe, which affects the amount of pectin in the fruit. In this case, add a jam-setting mixture, following packet instructions. Boil 5 minutes, until setting point is reached.
