The whole project took 1hour and 15 minutes, including cleaning jars in the dishwasher and then keeping them hot in the oven. As promised by the information on the can I now have 6 lbs of marmalade.
I did a taste test of the homemade marmalade and a commercial jar of Robertson's and there was no appreciative difference.
If you can find cans of Harley's Ma Made Marmalade Mix do give it a go.
