Can I Make Marmalade from Juice Instead of Fruit?

obillo | Aug 2, 202010:27 AM     12

I want to make bitter-orange marmalade. The problem is the oranges: they're known in Spanish as "naranjas agrias" or "amargas," but I can't find them in any Manhattan markets. They originate in India, where they're called "narayam," but I can't find them in Indian markets here. Canned fruit is sold online at ruinous prices (not to mention shipping). Then I saw Goya's bottled Naranja Agria, labeled as marinade. It's all juice (from concentrate) with a little citric acid, orange oil, pot sorbate thrown in; no sugar added. Should be just what I'm looking for, no? The problem is how much to use in a given recipe: they always say either "X pounds of oranges" "x number of oranges," and I have no idea how much juice is expected from such quantities, especially because Seville oranges are smaller, thicker-skinned and seedier than ordinary oranges. Can anyone help?
