Karl’s Super-Concentrated Fine-Shred Orange and Cranberry Marmalade

My wife, Jan, went to Fresno to visit family and friends just before Christmas. One of her friends orange bombed me with 40 perfectly ripe, 3 inch navel oranges—enough to make almost 20 jars of marmalade. I have already made and given away this year’s Christmas batch. What could I do to use them up without them just sitting on my shelf?

Karl’s Christmas Fine-Shred Orange and Lemon Marmalade

I have a few recipes that I make again and again. However, my penchant for never making the same recipe the same way twice means that they have morphed since I posted them years ago.  My Christmas marmalade is one such recipe.

Karl’s Colorful Coleslaw with Lemon Marmalade-Ginger Dressing

I had originally planned on a simple coleslaw with a vinegar based dressing for this Sunday’s dinner. However, the Stone Soup drive made me start adding ingredients—maybe some red cabbage and radishes, maybe some marmalade and ginger. This was a salad to go with my ham steak.

Karl’s Kumquat Marmalade

Ever since I watched the first episode of Miss Fisher, I knew I had to try my hand at kumquat marmalade. I promise I won’t use the poisoned sugar.

Karl’s Caramel Mandarin Micro Marmalade

I have been making marmalade the same way for years for a Christmas giveaway. I bought a  microplane zester that produced very fine bits of rind. Over time I have been experimenting with the recipe— no extra water, fine bits of zest and less and less sugar. This has produced an intensely flavorful marmalade.

Karl’s Sweet Lime Micro Marmalade

One of Jan’s friends has a sweet lime tree. She gave Jan 6 limes from her current crop. I decided that a small batch of marmalade was  the best way to preserve this bounty. I have learned over time that you can make marmalade out of any citrus fruit.

Karl’s Micro Mandarin Marmalade

Every Christmas for more than the last decade I have made marmalade as a giveaway. A few years ago, I bought a  microplane zester that produced very fine bits of rind. I also stopped using any extra water, just the zest and juice of the oranges. This micro marmalade was an intense flavorful jam, but it did not make as much as the old way I had been using. This year I ended up giving away all of the marmalade I produced and we had none left for ourselves.

Karl’s Micro Lemon Marmalade

Every Christmas for more than the last decade I have made marmalade as a giveaway. a few years ago I started making special batches of intense jams that contained only the zest and juice of the oranges. Last weekend I was lemon bombed and I wondered if I could make a marmalade of just lemons.

Karl’s Ultimate Micro Orange Marmalade with Meyer Lemon

Every Christmas for more than the last decade I have made marmalade as a giveaway. I would make 40-60 twelve ounce jars at a time. It always takes several days to process and cook all of that jam.

Karl’s Christmas Marmalade

Originally adapted from Joy of Cooking

Many moons ago we moved into the house across the street to be near our friends, Peg and Russ. In the back yard was an orange tree, a grapefruit tree, and three lemon trees (there was also an apple tree, three unproductive plum trees and we planted a fig and a mandarin orange tree in the 10 years we lived there). These trees produced a massive amount of fruit every year, far more than a small family could eat as just fruit. My solution to just throwing out all of the excess was to made marmalade to give away as Christmas gifts. Thus a tradition was born.
