2 lbs 4 oz (1 kg) Sugar
2 whole lemons

1. Peel the oranges, removing the pith (or the marmalade will become bitter)

3. Cover the peel with water, bring to the boil and boil for 5 minutes. Then drain the water.
4. Repeat step 3.
5. Once again repeat step 3 so that the peel has been boiled three times.
6. Chop up the oranges into pieces and throw away any seeds and large pieces of pith.
7. Chop up the whole lemons.
8.Put the orange pieces, the chopped peel and the chopped lemons into a bowl and add 6 cups of water.
