Ingredients

  • 600g carrots, peeled and grated on the coarse side of a box grater
  • 2 oranges, zested and juiced
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 400g granulated sugar

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Put the carrots into a pan with the orange and lemon zests and juices. Add 350ml water, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, put the sugar onto a baking tray and heat for 5-10 minutes in the oven, then add to the carrots. Stir to dissolve, return to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes until the marmalade reaches setting point or 105C/220F on a sugar thermometer.

  • STEP 3

    Pour into sterilised jars (see notes below), cover, seal and store in a cool, dark place.

To sterilise the jars, wash them in hot soapy water, rinse and put in an oven heated to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3 for 10 minutes.
