Marmalade is typically made in Greece when the oranges are at their ripest. Makes sure you buy the freshest and ripest oranges you can find for this recipe.

Greek Style Orange Marmalade Recipe Ingredients:

  • 5 medium oranges, washed and dried
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon zest
  • 6 cups water
  • 3 pounds of sugar
  • 1/2 cup Greek honey

How to Make Greek Style Orange Marmalade:

Slice the oranges with the peel on using a mandolin, removing the seeds along the way. The slices should be about 1/8-inch thick. Stack the slices on top of each other to make cutting easier and cut each slice into six pieces.

Transfer the slices to a large saucepan. Add the lemon zest, water, sugar, and honey. Set the heat to medium and stir the mixture constantly until the sugar dissolves.

Leaving the pan uncovered, let the mixture come to a boil. Reduce the heat to low after it boils and let the mixture simmer until it thickens considerably. This should take about 45 minutes. You can break up the fruit using a wooden spoon as it simmers if you don’t like your marmalade to be too chunk.

Turn off the heat and pour the marmalade into sterilized jars. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week unless you take the time to properly can and seal the jars.
