This makes 1 standard sized pot of marmalade, increase ingredients in the same ratios according to the amount required.

We tried two recipes for this marmalade. The second recipe suggested removing the outer skin of the rhubarb. This made a lighter pink coloured marmalade that spread better. With the outer skin left on the marmalade is darker as in the pictures.
