Lemon Marmalade

A friend of mine has the most magnificent lemon tree, which is heavily weighed down with an abundance of delicious juicy lemons & I love lemon marmalade. So today I made some. This is a very easy recipe & you will love the lemony smell wafting through your house, I promise.


Lemon Marmalade


  • 1 kg lemons
  • 1 kg sugar
  • 7 cups water

  1. Halve/quarter the lemons length way.
  2. Cut into thin slices (I use a food processor, much quicker).
  3. Soak the cut lemons overnight with the water, keep them covered.
  4. Transfer the mixture into a large pan.
  5. Bring to the boil & then simmer, covered, for about 40 minutes, or until the rind is soft.
  6. Add the sugar: stir over heat until the sugar is dissolved.
  7. Bring to the boil & then boil, uncovered, for about 30 minutes, or until the marmalade jells when tested.
  8. Pour into hot sterilised jars & seal.
  9. Makes about 6 cups.
