  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain jars well before filling.
  • Cut 1 of the limes into very thin slices; place in 3-qt. saucepan. Add water and baking soda; mix well. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 min., stirring occasionally. Cut remaining 7 limes into sections, removing and discarding peels and membranes. Add lime sections to saucepan; cover and simmer an additional 10 min.. Measure exactly 3-1/2 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot.
  • Stir pectin into prepared fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

How to Measure Precisely

To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cups, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.

    This is nasty, bitter marmalade. I'm no novice, so I didn't forget a step, etc. The pith in the slices make it bitter. So, I tried it again using the orange marmalade technique of finely slicing strips of the green only rind, but it was still VERY bitter. I don't recommend making it. It went in the garbage. Don't waste a great deal of time and money on this one.

    Sweet, tart, and with a touch of bitter, this recipe is exactly what a lime-lover wants. It is a marmalade, though, so expect that bit of bitter from the peel. Note -- when I first made it, it seemed very liquid in the jars. I set them aside to reprocess later, but within a week it had firmed up nicely.

    the lime flavor was overpowering.
