About Orange~Vanilla Bean Marmalade Recipe

Citrusy, easy, mess free with adjustable sugar, a keeper for sure this recipe for Orange~Vanilla Pod Marmalade, the highlight though is the burst of orange juice as you bite into the succulent rinds.

Orange~Vanilla Bean Marmalade

Ingredients to make Orange~Vanilla Bean Marmalade

  • 1 kg / 2 lbs fresh oranges (I used smooth skinned malta oranges)
  • 4 cups / 1 ltr water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (for a bitter marmalade) OR
  • 1+1/2 cup granulated sugar (for a bittersweet marmalade) OR
  • 1+3/4 cup sugar (for perfectly sweet marmalade)
  • 1 Vanilla bean (optional)

How to make Orange~Vanilla Bean Marmalade

  1. In a large pot, bring oranges along with a vanilla pod slit in half, with 4 cups water to a boil over high.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and cook at a rapid simmer until orange peels are tender, 20 minutes.
  3. Add sugar, increase heat to medium-high, and stir until sugar dissolves and returns to a boil. Cook, stirring often until mixture is thick and darkens slightly, 45 to 60 minutes (reduce the heat a bit if your mixture is boiling vigorously)
  4. Transfer marmalade to airtight containers, cover and let cool completely.
  5. To store, refrigerate for up to a month, or freeze up to 6 months.
