Recipe — Vanilla and Maple Clementine Marmelade
Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
1 portion
Metric Imperial


  • 10 clementines, seeds removed with skin on and stalk removed
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 cups maple syrup (Golden)
  • 2 vanilla pods, sliced in half


  1. Make a few incisions on each clementine.
  2. Place in large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute. Drain and repeat two more times. (Blanching citrus fruits reduces bitterness.)
  3. Let the clementines cool down, and chop into small pieces.
  4. Return fruits to the pan, pour the orange juice and the maple syrup, and add the vanilla pods. Cook 1 hour over low heat and uncovered.
  5. Remove the vanilla pods, scrape them well and put the seeds back in the pan.
  6. Using a hand blender, grind the mixture in 3 or 4 pulses (some pieces must remain in the marmalade). Simmer for 1 hour, stirring regularly.
  7. Pour the marmalade into sterilized jars and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.

This marmalade will be equally delicious with mandarins. Simply let the mandarins cool after the third blanching, cut them in half to remove the seeds, chop them into small pieces with a knife and continue the recipe as directed.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
