    Hi there,

    I'm looking for a good, tried and true, marmalade recipe. In particular a recipe using limes.

    Oooh, so do I! I have made some killer orange marm, but would love to try lime.

    I was just thinking that adjusting for the quantity of fruit, so it was the same - i.e. 4 cups= 4 cups- don't know if I'd mess with the sugar the first time around.

    The one secret I found was to prepare more fruit than called for and to cook it down longer. It really concentrates the flavor.

    I've never made any marmalade......any flavor. My crew thinks the only kind of "jam" is strawberry so that's all I've made for years.
