Orange Whiskey Marmalade Recipe

Add some Irish whiskey to your favorite fruit spread – what a way to start the day!

How To Make Orange Whiskey Marmalade

  • 4 large oranges
  • 2 large lemons
  • 2 1/2 cup water
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1 3/4 oz powdered fruit pectin
  • 5 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup Irish whiskey
  1. With a vegetable peeler or zester, remove the zest (the colored part of the peel) in strips from the oranges and lemons and chop. With a knife, scrape off all the white membrane, or pith, from the peeled fruit. Set aside. Chop the fruit, reserving the juice and removing the seeds.

  2. In a large, non-reactive saucepan over medium heat, bring the zest, water and baking soda to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, stirring several times, for 20 minutes, or until the zest begins to soften. Add the fruit, juice and pectin, and simmer for 20 minutes longer. Stir in the sugar, raise the heat to medium-high, add the cloves and bring to a boil.

  3. Continue to boil, stirring constantly, for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the mixture reaches 220 degrees on an instead-read thermometer and begins to get syrupy. Stir in the whiskey. Immediately spoon the hot marmalade into the hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch of headroom at the top of the jars. Wipe the rims clean, seal with lids and bands, and store in a cool, dry place for up to 1 year. Marmalade thickens as it cools, but it may take 2-3 days to fully set.
