This one from Karen Marsh in WA . It was in the last page of a demo book I got in Ccairns and never fails. Easy as.

1/2 kilo citrus fruit.  I always include one lemon to be sure it sets
150 mls water
400gm sugar

Slice fruit in quarters removing most of pips
Pop them into the TMX bowl and chop for 3 sec on speed 5
Add Water cook for 10 minutes at 100 degrees on reverse + soft speed
Add sugar and cook a further15 minutes at 100 degrees on reversr+  speed 1-2 until setting point is reached.

I have made many variation of this and it has worked every time. If you feel it won't set when cool then just  add some jam setter.

I guess it is the same as the on in the EDC from memory

Enjoy

Hi Gertbysea. This might seem like a really silly question but I have never made Marmalade before and have a huge amount of oranges I want to use up. Do you peel your oranges or leave the peel on? I noticed in a few other recipes they include the peel thinly sliced to get that organe peel look through the maramalde so wasn't really sure what to do.

There is no such thing as a silly question on this forum, Lisaarnold, I would like to know the answer as well.

Fundj, my goodness. Couldn't you sleep?? You'll be tired later! Did you peel the oranges? or just cut them up and remove the seeds?

Sorry to be a pest, just want to make sure I get this right. So you left the orange peel on the orange? I was concerned the pith of the orange would make it bitter?

If you have lots of oranges, replace the water with orange juice.  Save the peel from juiced oranges and make your own peel for cooking.  This is very nice and nothing like the nasty stuff you buy.  Also the peel can be candied and dipped in chocolate.

Thanks everyone. Made my marmalade and it's awesome. Turned out a lot better than my first attempt of jam when I first got my TMX. Used the basket to stop the spitting, added fungi's tips of cinnamon, agar agar and some vanilla paste (I didn't have vanilla sugar). Cooked it for an extra 10 mins as I was afraid it might not set like my strawberry jam. It started setting before I could even pour it out the jug, so hoping it will be ok! Also added fresh oj instead of water as per achookwoman's tip. Lovely result. Thanks for all your help. You guys are amazing.
