3kg seville oranges 
3 lemons, juiced 
2kg granulated sugar or preserving sugar 
seville orange marmalade 
Prick the oranges with a skewer, put in a large pan, cover with water, then simmer for 2 hours. Cool in the liquid. 
Take them out, cut in half, then scoop out the pulp and keep the pips. Finely shred the orange halves, keeping any juice. 
Boil the pips in the cooking water for 15 minutes. Strain out the pips and pour the liquid back into the pan along with the fruit, any orange juice and the lemon juice. 
Add the sugar and heat the mixture slowly, stirring until it has all dissolved. 
Bring to the boil and boil for 20 minutes. This should take the marmalade to setting point, if not, keep cooking. 
To test if it has reached setting point, drop a spoonful onto a plate that has been chilled in the freezer for 10 minutes, leave for a minute, then run your finger through the marmalade. The surface should wrinkle slightly. 
Pour the marmalade into sterilised jars. Seal. Makes 3kg.
