Orange Lemon Marmalade – flavored with vanilla and cinnamon; can be easily cooked on your stove top in about 15 minutes.
Orange Lemon Marmalade can be easily cooked on your stove top in about 15 minutes. It is flavored with vanilla and cinnamon that go very well with all kinds of citrus.
The only work you need to do is to peel the fruit. When you peel oranges and lemons, remove all white parts because they are pretty bitter.
Please do not put orange and lemon rind in your jam unless you can get organically grown ones. Conventional agriculture uses horrible fungicides which penetrate citrus rind and cannot be removed.
Orange Lemon Marmalade is fantastic on croissants or toasts with a bit of butter. Accompanied with a cup of latte, it makes perfect continental breakfast.

- 2 lemons
