  • 500 grams thinly sliced orange (2 large oranges)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 2 1/2 cups jam setting sugar (500 grams)
  • 2 cups water


  • Sterilise two medium jars (you can use the dishwasher and then allow to air dry if it's still a little wet.)
  • Wash and dry oranges. You'll need about 2 large or 3 medium oranges.
  • Chop oranges into quarters and then slice off and discard the middle pith and very ends of the orange quarter. Remove any visible seeds, too.
  • Thinly slice the quarters until you have 500 grams and then place into a saucepan.

  • Add vanilla and water.
  • Bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring every now and then.
  • Take off heat, add sugar and stir before returning to heat.
  • Bring to the boil again and then adjust so the mixture is simmering at a medium pace, not furiously and not gently.
  • Allow to simmer for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. You'll know the jam is ready when it loses its watery appearance and starts to look shiny and "grab" the bottom of the saucepan a little as you stir.
  • Pour into the jars and seal with a lid.
  • Store marmalade in fridge.
