What do I need?

  • 1 kg oranges (about 4 medium)
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice of
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 4 cups white sugar

How do I make it?

  1. Wash oranges and a lemon, thoroughly scrubbing the peels. Cut off the ends of the oranges then cut each orange in half, and then cut each half into 4, so you’re left with 8 pieces of orange. Discard any seeds.
  2. Add oranges to a saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Zest the lemon and squeeze the juice into the pot. Add water and sugar and stir well.
  3. Bring mixture to a boil. Simmer for 30-35 minutes until thickened.
  4. Use the frozen plate to test if it’s set. When it’s set, it will be a soft gel that moves slightly. If it is still thin and runs easily on the plate, keep cooking.
  5. Pour into jars or containers with a lid. Cool to room temperature. Allow to sit at room temperature for 24 hours, then store in a cool dry place for 6-10 months.
