Honeybell Orange Marmalade
Recently we received a box of honeybell oranges from Florida (thanks Mom!). If you have never had these particular oranges they are extremely heavy with juice and very sweet. I saw this recipe via punk domestics. I think the oranges this year were particularly large. The recipe uses 5 oranges to make 3 cups of orange pulp. I used five oranges and ended up with 5 cups of pulp. I needed to do a bit of recalculation on the sugar measurement. I didn't end up adding any extra rind with it (and probably should have). The result was a very "soft" jam, but very yummy! I ended up with 6 half-pints full. The recipe is pretty straight-forward and easy except for the more labor-intensive removal of the zest. A little taste of sunshine in January!
