Three-Fruit Marmalade Recipe

Three-Fruit Marmalade Recipe

I make all my own jams, and this marmalade is a favorite. It marries the warm flavors of peaches and pears with citrus.—Lorraine Wright, Grand Forks, British Columbia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Process: 10 min. YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium orange
  • 2 cups chopped peeled fresh peaches
  • 2 cups chopped peeled fresh pears
  • 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin

Directions

  • 1. Finely grate peel from orange; peel and section the fruit. Place peel and sections in a Dutch oven. Add peaches and pears. Stir in pectin. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil and stir 1 minute.
  • 2. Remove from heat; skim off foam. Ladle hot mixture into eight hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot mixture. Wipe rims. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.
