lb blood oranges
tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Expert Tips

The recipe is easily cut in half if you would rather make a smaller batch.

You can substitute plain oranges if blood oranges are not in season and make a regular orange marmalade.

You will hear a popping sound when your jars have sealed properly. If a jar doesn't seal, you will need to place it in the refrigerator.
