Christmas marmalade


  • Wash the apples thoroughly and cut them into 4 pieces, removing the stems.
  • Transfer to a pot with 750 g of water. Boil for 30 minutes over low heat, until they soften.
  • Drain in a strainer and reserve the liquid. Press down on the apples in the strainer with the back of a spoon to release extra juice. It is best not to press down on them so much so that the juice doesn’t become cloudy. Allow to drain for 2 hours.
  • Line a strainer with a piece of muslin or a thin kitchen towel and pour the juice and strain again. You want it to become completely clear. Refrigerate and allow to strain overnight.
  • The following day, carefully add 500 g of the juice to a pot. Do not mix too much so that any solid pieces that may have sunk to the bottom of the juice while straining overnight don’t rise to the surface. This way you will have a clearer marmalade when it is done.
  • Juice the oranges and mandarins. You should have about 500 g of juice. Reserve the seeds and place them in a spice bag.
  • Scrub the 2 extra oranges with a brush and thinly slice with a sharp knife.
  • Transfer to a saucepan and add 200 g water and 200 g granulated sugar. Boil over low heat until the orange slices become almost translucent.
  • In the pot with the apple juice, add the orange and mandarin juice, 1 kilo sugar, lemon juice, spices and spice bag with seeds.
  • Bring to a boil, gently stir and remove the froth.
  • Finely chop the nuts and add to the pot.
  • Boil over high heat for 10 minutes, removing froth again if necessary.
  • Remove the spice bag.
  • Check the consistency of the marmalade and transfer to jars.
  • Add the orange slices to the jars and mix well.
  • Seal jars and store in the refrigerator.
  • Serve onto any kind of toasted bread that you like, with mint leaves and blueberries.
