Cranberry & Clementine Marmalade

Makes 8 x 350ml jars

600g of Clementines
4 Unwaxed Lemons
225g cranberries (fresh is best but you can use frozen)
1.6kg preserving sugar
150ml whisky (optional)

Halve the clementines and lemons, then squeeze out the juice and remove the pips. Wrap the lemon halves and pips in muslin and tie into a bag. Cut the clementine skins in half again. Remove the pith and cut into fine shreds.

Put the peel, juices and muslin in a pan with 1.2 litres of water. Bring to the boil then simmer for 1-1.5 hours until the peel is very tender. Remove the muslin bag. allow to cool and squeeze all the juice from it into the pan.

Add cranberries to the pan and cook until they start to pop. Add the sugar, stir to dissolve and add the whisky.

Bring to the boil and boil vigorously for 20-25 mins until setting point is reached. 105c on a sugar thermometer or put a plate in the freezer for 10 mins. Add some marmalade to it and see if it wrinkles when you push it with your finger.

Leave to cool for 10 mins, skim any scum and put into sterilised jars.
