Grains of Paradise Lemon Marmalade

INGREDIENTS

6 Meyer lemons
4 cups water
4 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon RawSpiceBar’s Grains of Paradise

Special equipment:
Cheesecloth
Kitchen string
6 (1/2-pint) Mason jars, sterilized

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Halve lemons crosswise and remove seeds. Tie seeds in a cheesecloth bag. Quarter each lemon half and thinly slice. Combine with bag of seeds and water in a 5-quart nonreactive heavy pot and let mixture stand, covered, at room temperature 24 hours.
  2. Bring lemon mixture to a boil over moderate heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until reduced to 4 cups, about 45 minutes. Stir in sugar and RawSpiceBar’s Grains of Paradise. Boil over moderate heat, stirring occasionally and skimming off any foam, until a teaspoon of mixture dropped on a cold plate gels, about 15 minutes.
  3. Ladle hot marmalade into jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of top. Wipe rims with dampened cloth and seal jars with lids.
  4. Put jars in a water-bath canner or on a rack set in a deep pot. Add enough hot water to cover jars by 1 inch and bring to a boil. Boil jars, covered, 5 minutes and transfer with tongs to a rack. Cool jars completely.
