  • Put the fruit in a medium saucepan, and add the slices set aside. Add honey and whisky and water.  Bring to a full rolling boil stirring frequently. Keep at a full, rolling boil until mixture resembles a thick syrup, maybe 2 hours.
  • Remove pan from heat, and allow to cool 30 minutes. 

Slowly add gelatin stirring constantly to avoid clumping

  • Then pour into a jar or storage container. 


Any leftovers can be refrigerated for 3 days, or freeze them for several months. This is so delicious it won’t last long. You can also can this marmalade for longer-term storage if you have the time and equipment.
