Tasty Tuesday

            Feels like a Monday in August here! But good news is, I think and hope my Internet issues have been resolved, my provider came out earlier and changed towers and so far, so good, and speedy too! On the menu today, orange marmalade, since I bought a bag full last week and they need tending too! And if you remember, I shared my recipe for homemade English Muffin bread, a perfect companion for marmalade!
This recipe was found over at Food.com and I love it because it makes one, nice pretty jar without a ton of sugar! And you can always double the recipe.  Enjoy!!

Orange Marmalade


  1. 1
    Select Navel oranges that have the thinnest peel.
  2. 2
    If the orange is large double the amount of water and sugar.
  3. 3
    Wash the orange thoroughly.
  4. 4
    Cut off both ends of the orange.
  5. 5
    Cut the orange in half, cut each half in about eight sections.
  6. 6
    Place the orange sections in the food processor and pulse until the peel in is tiny pieces.
  7. 7
    In a medium saucepan place the processed orange, the water and the sugar and bring to a gentle boil.
  8. 8
    Boil for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
  9. 9
    Let cool, then place in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid.
  10. 10
    Refrigerate to store.
  11. 11
    When it is cold it is ready to eat.
  12. 12
    I use 1/2 sugar and 1/2 Splenda and it works well.


  1. I love orange marmalade but have never made it. This sounds so very good! Now. . . just give me some hot, homemade bread, real butter. . . and I'm a happy camper!

  2. Ummm I love orange marmalade...especially with shrimp!!



  3. Sounds good...I bet it would taste good on fresh hot homemade biscuits.

  4. OMG, great minds must work alike!! Hubby and I were out to breakfast and I had Orange Marmalade on my toast. I was thinking I would like to make some for home use, but discarded the idea, because I didn't want a whole lot of it. Then you blogged about making a small batch. Thank you, thank you.

  5. Orange marmalade - yum! I have never made it either...I'll have to try your recipe. Becks x

  6. Lovelove LOOOOOVE orange marmalade.
    Sounds divine.
    I'd take me some on a biscuit, a muffin, crescent roll, cornbread... slice of bread, ... pretty much anything. :)
    Hey did you ever read the short story called ESTHERS GIFT by Jan Karon? If not... you gotta read it. It's SO SUE!!! And ... about making orange marmalade cakes.. even has the recipe in the back.
    It's eleven pm and I now can't get orange marmalade off my mind.
    Time for a bedtime snack. lol
    Holykisses chicky!
