- 650-700 grams oranges, (valencia work well)
- 750 grams water
- 750 grams raw sugar
1. cut ends off orange, cut in half and slice very thinly. You could use a mandolin if you wanted to, but I prefer to use a very sharp knife.
2. put cut oranges in a bowl and cover with water and soak overnight 3. drain oranges in TM basket but reserve liquid 4. weigh out oranges in TM bowl - you should have between 500-600gms (after perviously removing ends in step 1) and place into TM bowl 5. Weigh out 750gms of reserved orange liquid into the TM bowl and cook for: 10 minutes | 100 degrees | Reverse | speed soft 6. Add 750gms sugar, cook for: 5mins | 100 degrees | Reverse| Speed 2
7. Cook for 35-50 mins| Varoma | Reverse | speed 2 | with MC off and the varoma on top to prevent spittingthe varoma allows the steam to escape, but also catches all the spitting and drips. The cooking time is varied, as it will depend on what type of oranges used and what pectin level they have, as to how quickly it's going to jell. I used valencia oranges and they took approx 40 mins. My advice would be to check every 5-10 mins after 30 mins. If you cook too long, the orange peel with candy and it will be too firm - undercook it and you'll have a sauce not a jam! The best way to test to see if jam is ready, is to put a small plate in the freezer, and once it is cold, drop some hot jam onto the plate with a metal spoon. If you jam 'jells' when put onto the plate, you're good to go. (Thats another Nan trick!). 8. Bottle jam into washed and sterilised jars. I used ball mason jars which are fantastic for preserving, but any recycled jars will be fine. You will have approximately one litre of jam once it's ready.
This is a conversion from one of my dear Nan's cookbooks - it's delightful on thick cut toast with home made butter and a nice hot cup of tea. I hope you enjoy it.
