I found this on a New Zealand site. Sounded interesting so I've posted it to share. Quantity is only a guess as I haven't made this myself yet, but I do intend to soon. Please remember that this is a preserve. The marmalade needs to sit for at least 6 weeks before you try it.

This is wonderful! I couldn't wait the 6 weeks, so I took a bite before canning it and I love how all the flavors come together- the citrus, cayenne and herbs provide layers of flavors. I plan on serving this with some crackers and cream cheese. I made half a recipe which came out to 3 half pints. Thank you Jewelies- this is a GREAT recipe!
This is awesome stuff! I expected sweet but it is a balance of sweet and acid. Did use one yellow pepper to add more color but I will be making this for holiday presents. Thanks for posting.
I have made this on a couple of occasions and have enjoyed it immensely. Although i found it difficult to wait 6 weeks it was definitely worth the wait.
