Chookie this is a wonderful recipe.I had lemons sitting in my fruit bowl and decided to make this this afternoon.Didn't tell DH that it had carrot in it when he asked what I was cooking :-)) Told him it was orange peel ;) I couldn't rely on my judgement when trying to workout the amount of sugar so I weighed the empty TM bowl before I started and weighed it again after the first 15 minutes of cooking.Subtracted the two numbers and then added the correct amount of sugar.Made 3 and a bit jars ;D

CC, you don't have to be too accurate with the sugar.  Glad you like it.   You can add this to cakes or use under steamed Puds.  Very handy.

Thank you for the recipe and hints, Chookie.  It smells beautiful.  Cooking time is up, but I'm just not sure about how set it is.  Will do andie's test and hope my version of your mmld passes.

Made this again yesterday. Once again a real hit. I used 3 lemons straight off the tree (just showing off) and  used just 550g of sugar.  Thank you

Thanks to Gert's effort today, I think I have enough lemons and carrots to give this a whirl.  Not the best at jams etc so might be a bit of a learning curve ;) :)

Think I got a little carried away with the amount of Tangelos , very runny but nice May have to do a few puddings with the marmalade . Was going to have another try . Seemed a lot of sugar too . May be I added too much water !

I am planning to try this recipe as I bought  a big bag of lemons yesterday and I have run out of my strawberry jam...
Loving the reviews.

Stuck to recipe but cooked for extra 5 minutes, turned out a bit stiff.
The sugar can be reduced but this helps with the setting. Traditionally when making jam, sugar was equal to volume of cooked fruit , so this 3/4 amount is already reduced.
