This year, I thought I would show you how I do it, using most of the gadgets on my food processor!
Vegan Vampyre Marmalade
1 kg blood oranges
1.8 kg granulated sugar
1 litre water
A generous slug of Drambuie
Wash fruit and cut into halves.
Using "squeezer" attachment on food processor, extract juice from fruit.
The skins will be almost clean of fruit.
With about half an hour to go, warm the oven on its lowest setting and put in your clean jars to sterilise. You will need 7 or 8.
When the two hours are up, pour the warmed sugar into the pot - remember your oven gloves!
Allow to cool before trying to move the jars. Screw lids on tightly once really cool. Some people use waxed discs to create a vacuum and prevent mould but I don't.
Employ a child to design your labels. Or do it yourself.
