Delicious lime marmalade


  • 2kg limes (fresh with good skins)
  • 2kg white sugar
  • water


1. Soak the limes in warm water for about 3 hours then dry. Cut the limes in half and juice. Set the juice aside.
2. Slice the skins of the limes into thin slivers, cutting out the bit at the top where the stick is.
3. Place the skins in a large pan and add half the juice. Add enough water to cover the skins. Bring to the boil then allow to simmer until the skins are tender, about 1 hour.
4. Add the sugar and the remaining juice to the skins and stir until the sugar dissolves.
5. Bring to the boil, stirring and cook until the mixture starts to thicken and gel, about 20 minutes. To test the marmalade, put a small plate into the freezer for about 5 minutes. Put a dollop of marmalade onto the plate and run your finger through the middle. If the marmalade doesn't run back into the line, it is at setting point.
6. Pour into sterilised jars and seal.
