Tuesday at The Table - Classic Orange Marmalade

This month my daughter was required to make Classic Orange Marmalade for Food Technology at school as well as doing an assignment on the marmalade making process. I am not quite sure exactly which recipe was used as there are many of them if you do a web search.
As with many of her cooking projects, we often do a trial run at home so that she knows what is involved (and so that we get to try new things too!) so some of these photos are from home, and the rest from the school kitchen.
 Chopping up the oranges...
Simmering on the stove top, whilst the liquid reduces. ..
Before adding quite a large quantity an obscene amount of sugar and the important pectin test!!!
And the finished product! She printed off the label from a fabulous site called "Jam Labelizer" where you can generate your own labels.
As for her assignment on the process - with 56/60 she topped the class!!!!

PS . You may have noticed that many most of my TaTT posts are about my daughter's cooking pursuits as I much prefer to be sewing:)


  1. Yay for your daughter. Though I can't say I actually like marmalade, I am very impressed she is making it and topping her class.

  2. good for her xx bet it tasyes as good as the marks xxx

  3. Ok, I'm a little bit jealous that your daughter gets to make marmalade in high school. That looks delicious and fun! Congratulations to your beautiful girl on leading the class!

  4. Wow - that's really cool. And congrats to her for the top marks. :D

  5. oh this is very fun! Great that she did so well. Isn't she sweet!!

  6. Oh wow, that's fantastic! And I agree, obscene is the right word for the amount of sugar that goes into these kinds of things. :)

    Your daughter is very beautiful, by the way!

  7. I am thrilled to see a Food Tech teacher give an assignment on preserves. Such a lost art. Now did you design the cute label too?

  8. Yay for her! My mum makes tons of orange marmalade in this giant copper pan, but I have to admit I'm more of a lime marmalade fan

  9. Way to go G!! Congrats on topping the assignment.

  10. What a beautiful and talented daughter you have! I love marmalade and have in fact just eaten some on toast but not homemade sadly.
