Easy Homemade Orange Ginger Marmalade

January 10, 2012
With winter comes citrus season.  You will find oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit in abundance this time of year.  An easy way to preserve this bounty is to make this  orange-ginger marmalade.  Orange marmalade is delicious spread on freshly baked scone, layered into a cake, or simply on a piece of toast.  This recipe specifically calls for oranges but feel free to substitute with clementines or tangerines- both would be wonderful.  Orange-ginger marmalade is the must-make preserve of the season.
4 tablespoons ground ginger
450 grams sugar
Wash the oranges thoroughly then grate orange rind, set aside.
Peel the white pith from the oranges and remove seeds.
Chop oranges into rough pieces and transfer to a blender or food processor. Blend until finely ground.
In a medium saucepan place all ingredients and bring it to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
When done let it cool for a bit before transferring to a sterilized jars.
