Low-waste and Organic Marmalade Recipe

A recipe for a low-waste marmalade and cleaner all in one! 


  • Organic Citrus peels (lemon, lime or orange)
  • Organic Honey or another sweetener like agave
  • Water


  1. Save your peels and leave them to simmer in enough water to cover them, plus a bit more. 
  2. Once your peels are tender (after 10-15 minutes), drain the water into a container and leave to cool.
  3. Pour the water into a spray bottle and use it as an all-purpose cleaner!
  4. Once the peels are cold, slice them to your desired thickness or length.
  5.  Mix 1-part peels to 1-part honey although, you can adjust this as it depends on the consistency you would like.
  6. Cook the mixture on the stove for 10 minutes – here, you can add any spices, extra honey, or a splash of water.
  7. Spoon the mixture into a clean glass jar – a store in the fridge.
  8. Et voila, a cleaner and marmalade all in one for all your low waste cleaning and tea and toast desires!
