Sweet orange marmalade

Jam is a fairly familiar delicacy, which is difficult to surprise someone with. But this cannot be said about orange jam. A sweet aromatic mixture of amber color will bring true pleasure. And what kind of aroma spreads around the house when it is cooked, real aromatherapy. The addition of lemon will give sourness, a stick of cinnamon – a light aroma, and the use of zest will only enhance the citrus taste.

  • 1 mix bowl
  • 1 knife peeler optional
  • 1 plate
  • 1 saucepan
  • 1 tablespoon


  • 1 kg orange
  • 1 pc lemon
  • 400 g sugar
  • 150 ml water
  • 1 pc cinnamon stick


  • Prepare everything you need. Oranges and lemon choose a bright color, strong and elastic, without signs of spoilage and rotting.
  • Place the fruits washed under the tap in a spacious bowl and pour freshly boiled water. Do not leave them for soaking, just pour boiling water over them. This will allow you to wash off the wax that is used to process the peel to increase the shelf life.

  • With a vegetable peeler or a sharp knife, cut off the zest. Remove only the upper part, trying not to touch the white layer. Use not all of the zest, but only half of the oranges. We used 3 oranges, and for jam we will need 1.5 zest, the rest can be dried and brewed tea or added to pastries.
  • Clean the white part. If you leave it, the finished orange jam will taste bitter. Do the same with lemon.
  • Cut the pulp into slices with a small sharp knife.
  • Put them in a saucepan together with lemon slices.

  • Add the crushed zest of lemon and oranges. Put a cinnamon stick. You can also use ground, but the stick gives a more subtle flavor.
    1 pc cinnamon
  • Pour in water. The additional liquid will allow the jam not to burn at the initial stages.
    150 ml water
  • Put on the stove and cook over low heat. Stir occasionally, 10 minutes after boiling. Then turn off the fire and let it cool completely.
  • Repeat the procedure two more times. Orange jam will turn amber in color. If desired, you can punch a little with an immersion blender.
  • Transfer the finished jam from oranges to a glass container and store in the refrigerator.
