Orange Marmalade

I had quite a few cutie oranges (small oranges) sitting on my counter top with no takers. They were little sour so instead of throwing them one by one, I prepared this orange marmalade. It's Alton Brown's recipe from food network. I modified to keep the sugar low.

Prep Time: 10 min| Cooking Time: About 1 and 1/2 hour | Makes: About 9 cups


Oranges - About 10 to 12 Cutie oranges
Lime juice and it's Zest - 1 lime.
Sugar - 2 cups
Salt - 1/4 tsp.

Method of Preparation:

~ Wash and clean oranges and lemon thoroughly. Chop the oranges in thin circles. In a big pot add orange slices, lime zest, lime juice, salt and water to cover them.
~ Bring them to boil on high. Reduce and keep it high enough for it to simmer. Simmer for about 45 minutes.

~ Now the quantity should be reduced to 2/3rd. Add sugar, mix it well and continue to cook for another 15 to 20 minutes.

~ Check if it's thick enough and remove from heat. Let it cool. I usually let it cool overnight.
~ Store it in clean glass jars with tight lid. Once opened store it in refrigerator.
~ These can be used to spruce up toast in the morning.
