Total: 2 Hours, 15 Minutes


4 large Valencia or navel oranges
1 lemon
2 cups sugar
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1 3/4 cups sparkling rosé or sparkling white wine


1. Grate zest from oranges to equal 1 Tbsp. Grate zest from lemon to equal 1 tsp.

2. Peel and section oranges and lemon, holding fruit over a bowl to collect juices.

3. Stir together zest, fruit segments, sugar, kosher salt, 1/3 cup fruit juices, and wine in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 50 minutes or until a candy thermometer registers 225° and mixture is slightly thickened. Cool completely (about 1 hour; mixture will thicken as it cools). Pour into 2 (8-oz.) jars or airtight containers, and chill 24 hours. Store marmalade in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
