How To Make Orange Marmalade In The Instant Pot

Before you start anything, make sure to wash the oranges thoroughly before you cut them into even quarters.

Place the oranges into the food processor and pulse them all together until they are grated.  If you could use a new food processor, click here for the food processor model I recommend.

You want to make sure that pieces of the orange skin are still visible. Do not overprocess and turn the oranges into a puree.

Add the water and grated oranges into the Instant Pot. Close the lid and turn the valve to a “sealing” position. Press the “Pressure Cook” or “Manual” button and set the time to 10 minutes on HIGH pressure.

When the Instant Pot is done cooking, quick release (QR) the steam carefully.

Note: Be careful when doing this step. The steam comes out very hot and quick and can easily burn you. Make sure to wait until all the steam is out before removing the lid.

Press the “Cancel” button to reset the Instant Pot. Then, press the “Saute” button.

Slowly add in the sugar to the Instant Pot and stir the sugar into the mixture of oranges to combine.

After the orange marmalade is done cooking and has cooled down enough, you can go through the process of canning to be able to stock all of these jars safely and correctly.
