The color does not even start to describe the incredible taste. It is like spreading a little piece of heaven on toast!
This marmalade is made with very small oranges that are found in Central Mexico. They are often discarded by farmers or given to animals to eat. A friend brought me some from a farm not far from San Miguel de Allende, where I live. Eaten raw they are a little bit bitter, and in marmalade simply delicious!
For one kilogram of oranges
1- Wash them thoroughly. Cut them in four quarters discarding the seeds, and keeping the skin.
2- Immerse in water for 24 hours covered.
3- In a large pan, place the oranges and the liquid with one kilogram of sugar. Stir and bring to a boil. Then lower the fire and let it cook for 45 minutes, stirring from time to time.
4- Place in a tightly sealed sterilized jar. Let it cool then place in the fridge for 24 hours. It is ready the next day.
Note: If there is too much liquid after 45 minutes of cooking, keep the extra liquid for mixing as a natural sweetener for cakes or pancakes. It works very well.
