Preparation steps

1.
Peel half of the zest from the lemons using a vegetables peeler so you are left with thin pieces.
2.
Julienne the peel and reserve to one side. Squeeze the lemons into a measuring jug; remove all the pulp and pips but reserve them.
3.
Pour the juice into a large non-metallic bowl that can hold at least 2 litres in volume. Make the juice up to 1.7 litres with cold water.
4.
Place the pulp and pips on a sheet of muslin and tie up into a bag using kitchen twine or string. Place in the lemon liquid, then cover the bowl and leave it overnight.
5.
The next day, pour the liquid and the muslin bag into a large, stainless steel saucepan and cook over a medium heat for 30-35 minutes until the julienned peel is soft.
6.
Preheat the oven to 170°C (150 fan) | 325°F | gas 3 and place a couple of saucers in the freezer; they will be needed for testing the marmalade's setting point. Place two 450 g jam jars with their lids in the oven to sterilise.
7.
Remove the muslin bag and keep to one side until cool enough to handle. Add the sugar to the saucepan and stir well, then squeeze all the liquid contents from the muslin bag back into the saucepan.
8.
Boil the marmalade for 10-12 minutes, then test a teaspoon of the marmalade on one of the cold saucers. When the marmalade has cooled, prod it to see if a skin has formed. If so, it is ready. If not, continue boiling for 3-4 minutes before testing again.
9.
When ready, remove the pan from the heat and set it to one side. Fill the sterilised jam jars with the hot marmalade and seal immediately. Let the jars cool to room temperature before storing or serving.
