Five-Minute Orange Marmalade

Oh how I heart five-minute recipes.
Even if they actually take ten.
Close enough, in my book.

This orange marmalade recipe, made in minutes in the microwave with just one orange and some sugar, is about as simple as they come.  And we can just keep that our little secret, 'kay?

MICROWAVE ORANGE MARMALADE
Cut one orange into segments, peel and all.  Place segments in food processor and whirl away until peel is nice and chopped up.  If any peel escapes the blades' notice, you can fish it out with a spoon and dice it up on the cutting board.

Measure orange pulp/peel.  Pour it into a medium-size glass bowl; add the same amount of sugar as pulp mixture and stir.  Cover with glass top or paper towel.  Microwave at 50 percent power for 6 or 7 minutes, stopping every minute or two to stir.  You should notice mixture gradually thickening up a bit.  (It will never be completely thick until you refrigerate it, so don't keep microwaving past 7 minutes.)  Pour into jar, cool, then refrigerate until ready to use.

If you happen to have any of this around
slather on liberally.
Makes one small jar.

That is one thing I just love and this recipe is so amazing, I might have to try it just on principle. I do have oranges left.

Now I've heard it all. When I go through my books seeking marmalade recipes, they never, ever take five minutes. Let's not tell Marion about this, lol...

Thanks for sharing, Lynn...

That sounds good! I made my own small container of strawberry jam last night...with no sugar. The fresh strawberries were sweet enough. Enjoy your weekend!

Mmm, Lavender Dreamer, strawberry jam with no sugar sounds tasty. I think it will be a while before the strawberries around here are ripe . . .
