Lemon marmalade - 

Recipe 3 Lemon & Ginger Marmalade

This recipe basically follows the same method as the two previous ones 


1kg Lemons (or Limes or oranges or a mixture of all three)
6 pints/3.5 litres water
Granulated or Jam Sugar
4oz/100g root ginger
4 -8oz/100-200g crystallised ginger*


Prepare the fruit as in either of the previous recipes - Thick cut marmalade or Thin cut, Lemon shred marmalade but then peel and bruise/crush the root ginger or chop or slice it and tie in a muslin cloth and add to and boil with the fruit pulp.

After boiling, remove the ginger and strain the pulp and proceed as previous recipes.

Chop the crystallised ginger 

and add to the fruit juice once the sugar has dissolved, and keep stirring for a few minutes to ensure that sugar adhering to the ginger has dissolved, then bring to the boil until setting point has been reached.

Leave to cool for a few minutes and then stir to ensure an even distribution of peel and ginger. Pour into jars and seal.  If the mixture is too hot when you pour into jars there is a risk that the ginger will sink to the bottom.  If this does occur, stir the contents in the jar before sealing.

* If you want only a hint of ginger use the lower quantity.  If you want it fiery increase the quantity to your own taste. You don't have to limit it to 8oz/200g.
