Marmalade jam

Upon returning from my grandparents a few weekends ago I was given a giant box of oranges. Now I love oranges and all but I'm not quite sure what to do with a giant box full.

So I decides to try my hand at making marmalade.

I found a basic recipe on the ABC site here to follow roughly.

Orange Marmalade
500g Oranges
1 Lemon
4 Cups water
2 Cups orange juice
4 ish cups sugar
2 tsp jamsetta

Chop the orange and lemon finely and add water and orange juice. Cook until orange is soft. This took about 40 minutes for me. Then add the sugar and jamsetta and boil for 35 min.
Sanitise your jars in boiling water.
Then let the marmalade sit for 10 minutes and pour into your jars.
