Step 1: Infuse citrus

Fill Muslin Bag with Merry Mulling Spice Blend and tie closed. Add to a medium pot along with oranges, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Cover with water. Bring to a boil and reduce to a rapid simmer for 40 min., stirring frequently.

Step 2: Thicken marmalade

Set a small plate in the freezer to chill. Remove bag of spices from pot and discard. Return mixture to a boil. Add sugar and boil, stirring constantly, for 15 to 20 min. or until mixture reaches 222 degrees and darkens in color. To test if marmalade is finished, spoon a teaspoon of mixture onto chilled plate and let sit 30 seconds. Marmalade should flow slightly like a soft gel. If the mixture is too thin, continue boiling and test again.

Step 3: Serve and store

Spread finished marmalade on toast, swirl into yogurt, or serve on your next cheese board. Marmalade will keep for 3 to 4 weeks in refrigerator or up to a year if properly canned.
