    Preserving sugar will give a much better result.

    @william ferraby:

    Why would preserving sugar improve the result? The size of the crystals is immaterial once dissolved, the extra pectin is completely unnecessary given the amount present in the peel, pith and pips of the oranges, and its cost is exorbitant.

    I made this with just ordinary sugar and had no problems and the flavour is lovely. Has a wonderful smell and the bits of tomato and orange candy beautifully. Highly recommended.

    Made a batch August 2013. Left to mature ’til November 2013. Personally, I find it too sweet and neither a jam or a chutney. Not a recipe I will be repeating.

    By the way, I completely agree with LizzieInMancs’ comments.
