Homemade Orange Jam

Well, today I decided to make Orange Jam as we have almost finished the Strawberry Jam that I made earlier.  Ehmm... I am quite happy with the outcome!


Ingredients

a) 10 oranges and 1 grapefruit - wash thoroughly, remove seeds and cut into small chunks

b) 1 lemon - (juiced)
c) 2 cups of orange peels - finely sliced
d) 1 cinnamon stick
e) 3 cups of granulated sugar
f) some pandan leaves
 
 
Method :
 
1)  Blend ingredients (a).
2)  Transfer the puree to a medium-sized pot.

  
3)  Add ingredients (b, c, d and e).
4)  Cook the puree on medium low heat for about an hour or when it begins to thicken.

 


5) Add in pandan leaves and keep stirring for about 20 minutes or until it thickens.
6) Remove pandan leaves and cinnamon stick.
7) Let it cool completely before transfer to an airtight container.
8) Store in the refrigerator. It stays good for 2 to 3 weeks.
