This marmalade is a zesty delight. Full of tangy citrus fruit, including fresh oranges, lemons and limes, it makes the perfect topping for a crusty piece of toast enjoyed at breakfast with the family. Once opened, keep chilled and eat within 1 month.

Cut the fruit into large chunks. Put half in a food processor and whizz briefy to small chunks. Set aside and repeat with the remaining fruit. Put the fruit in a large pan and add 1ltr (1 3⁄4pt) water. Bring to the boil and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and leave, covered, overnight.

Add the sugar and return the pan to a gentle heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil. Boil, uncovered, for 40-50 minutes, or until the mixture reaches 105°C on a sugar thermometer. Spoon the marmalade into sterilised jars and seal.

Tip: Bottle the preserves immediately in hot sterilised jars. Simply wash with soapy water, rinse clean, then dry in a roasting tin lined with nonstick baking paper for 1 hour at gas 1, 140°C, fan 120°C.
