“This sounds so good. Look at how much ginger there is!!!! This will taste great!”
1 batch

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups lemons, chopped (actually any citrus, however the system does not recognize citrus as a food, so use what you have or)
  • 12 cup ginger, coarsely grated
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups sugar


  1. Cut citrus into segments, removing all membranes, pith and seeds (this will add the pectin that thickens the marmalade). Place the membranes, pith, and seeds into a piece of cheesecloth and tie it up (pectin bag).
  2. Add citrus segments, ginger, water and pectin bag to a pot.
  3. Boil over medium-high heat until the segments are soft (about 35 minutes).
  4. Take mixture off the stove and remove the pectin bag.
  5. When the bag has cooled, squeeze it over the pot to remove any remaining pectin.
  6. Add sugar and return the mixture to the stove.
  7. Boil for about 35 minutes but you may want to keep your eye on it after 15 minutes. It should reach 220 degrees Fahrenheit and be thickened.
  8. OR, use good canning methods to preserve for a gift.
  9. Serve when cool.
