Ingredients
  • 3 lemons
  • 5 juniper berries, lightly crushed
  • 400g whole clementines
  • 500g jam sugar (with pectin)
  • 100ml Extra Special Triple Distilled Premium Gin
Method
  • Squeeze the lemons, reserving the pips. Put the pips on a square of new J-cloth or muslin with the juniper berries and use string to tie into a bag.

  • Put in a large pan with the lemon juice, clementines and 800ml water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 1 hr 30 mins.

  • Discard the bag. Remove the clementines and put on a plate. Peel and cut the rind into strips. Roughly chop the clementine flesh, saving the juice. Return everything to the pan and add 500g jam sugar. Boil, uncovered, for 15-25 mins. Put a small drop onto a chilled plate and push gently with your finger. If it wrinkles, the marmalade is ready.

  • Remove from the heat and add the gin. Leave for 20 mins, then stir and put into hot, sterilised jars. Cover with lids or jam pot covers and store in a cool, dark place.
