    Orange IPA Marmalade

    Ingredients...

    2.5L India Pale Ale
    1kg Oranges
    1 Lemon
    2kg Sugar

    Will make around 7 x 450g, so you will need 7 jars (sterilised).

    Method...

    1. Pour the IPA into a large thick bottomed pan. Cut the oranges and lemon in quarters and squeeze the juice into the pan (Remove the pips).

    2. Cut the orange and lemon peel into slices and add to the pan.

    3. Simmer gently uncovered for 1h 30m.

    4. Add the sugar to the pan and increase the heat a little and stir to dissolve. Increase the heat to high and boil for 15 minutes.

    5. Put a little of the marmalade onto a cold saucer and let it cool. Push with your finger and if it wrinkles, it is ready. If not, continue to boil for another 10 minutes and test again.

    6. Leave to cool for about 10 minutes. Fill the jars, leaving a little head space.

    7. Let the jars cool for around 15 minutes without disturbing them.

    Give to friends and family at Christmas.

    Suggest oranges cut into halves which makes juice extraction easier. Then scoop out flesh and pips from orange halves and put that into a muslin bag, and then tie it up. Bag added to boil stage but removed at the end of it . This will give a clearer marmalade, but pectin needed for the final set is still provided. One way of sterilising jars and lids is to put them in the oven for about 30 mins at about 100*C. And it may help to fill the jars if you use a glass jug to ladle out the hot marmalade which you can also sterilise in the oven beforehand.
