Here is another marmalade recipe with a difference – orange and peach marmalade.
Traditionally orange marmalade is sweet tart. This recipe adds an extra measure of sweetness with the addition of several peaches.
This is an interesting mix of flavors. When picked at their peak of ripeness, peaches are soft and oh so sweet. They are one of my favorite summer fruits.
Marmalade is not usually one of my favorite jams, but with peaches added, it’s on my list of must haves.
Orange and Peach Marmalade
- 24 peaches
- 3 oranges
- 10 cups sugar
- Peel the peaches and cut them into small pieces. Finely shred 1 orange skin and add it to the peaches. Cut the oranges into small pieces and chop fine. Add the sugar.
- Cook 45–60 minutes on medium heat. Store in sterilized jars.
- Makes about 6 small jam jars.
- This recipe can easily be mulitplied to make as many jars as you want.
- This recipe is older. Today’s health and safety standards would probably call for this recipe to be processed in a boiling water bath for 15 to 20 minutes if you want to keep it a long while.
