  • About 1.6kg citrus fruits
  • 1.5 litres (6 cups) water
  • 2 lemons
  • 1.25kg (5 cups) sugar


  1. Cut fruit into quarters and slice finely. Put into a large bowl and cover with the water. Allow to stand overnight.
  2. Tip the fruit and water into a large pan, bring to the boil and simmer covered until the rind is very tender (40-60 minutes depending on how finely you have cut the rind).
  3. Add the sugar and stir until it has dissolved. Increase heat and boil, uncovered until it gels when tested on a cold saucer. This will probably take at least 45 minutes. Pour into hot, sterilized jars and seal.
