It's winter already and I could not think of anything better than homemade marmalade since it's raining oranges all over! Also, it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas so, I decided to make a fresh orange marmalade filled with warmth, giving all winter vibes and Christmassy feels!

Here, is a very easy recipe recipe for marmalade with minimal ingredients-

  • 3 - oranges

  • 500gm- sugar

  • 1bsp- lemon

  • 3 cups- water

  • 2tsp- agar agar powder (Meron)

For dries orange candies-

  • 1 - orange

  2. Chop the zest finely into ribbon-like stripes.

  3. In a pan, add juice and chopped peel, bring it to a boil.

  4. Meanwhile, take a cloth and put the seeds and fiber of oranges. Tie the cloth into a small bag, put it in the pan along with the juice and chopped peels.

  5. Add 2 tbsp of agar agar powder and cook the mixture for 20 minutes.

  6. Once it thickens, pour the mixture into jars and refrigerate overnight.

For dried orange candies-

  1. Make sugar syrup by adding 1 cup sugar to 1 cup water, bring it to a boil.

  2. Cut the orange into thin slices and dip each slice into the sugar syrup mixture.
