I had a go at making marmalade in my bread maker.
I found the concept a little strange to comprehend (isn’t a breadmaker for making bread?) until a friend explained it can get really hot, it can mix itself and it’s a nonstick pan.
So I set I cutting up oranges, added the required amount of sugar and jam-setta and a squirt of ginger for good measure. (Tubes of ginger are totally a thing in Australia if this is a weird concept to any readers.)
I then I pressed the jam button and let the bread maker to work it’s magic.
The end result was a little runny and chunky.
But totally edible. Which for a first jam making attempt is a success.
I would imagine any attempt using thermometers, crock pots and stirring would not gone so successfully.
