Homemade Orange Jam without Preservatives / Orange jam using Fresh Orange Juice / Orange Jelly – Jam Recipes


Making jam is so much fun, I love doing it..It gives you immense pleasure if you make your own stuffs at home..Because you know it is healthy and preservatives free, since you know what is inside that.. oranges are in season right now, Ok I know a little late..I made this couple of weeks back..But still  oranges are available here..Its so cheap right now..So go get some fruit and whip up this stuff.


It seems a little complicated, but once you start making this, you will know how easy and cheap it is..yes it is very cheap compared to the orange jam that is available in those labeled fancy jars. I added lemon juice as a preservative here, to freshen it up and save it for a long time..But you do need to put this in the fridge as a precaution.


This jam won’t be thick when it is in the stove..Actually you should take it off the heat once it starts to thicken up, because it will get so thick as it cools down. So be careful…This taste great when spread on toast..I have half a jar of it leftover in my fridge , I am planning to make some nice jam filled cupcakes or cookies out of that..Will let you know the results.


Hope you like it and let me know if you have any doubts..

Ingrediants:

Orange – 2 kgs
Sugar – 500 gms
Salt – 1 tsp
Lemon Juice – 3 tblspn

Method:

Juice all the oranges using a juicer.


Now pour this fresh juice in a large kadai. Bring this to a boil.

Simmer this for 15 mins untill the juice has reduced in half.

Add sugar and salt and mix well. Boil till you reach a thick flowing consistency. It won’t be so thick, but as it cools down it will get thick.

Switch off the flame and add lemon juice to it and mix well.

Let it cool completely before tranfering into a clean container and put in fridge..

Enjoy it with warm toast.

Pictorial:
Take all your ingrediants
Nice fresh oranges

Take juice from it..
Pour it in a kadai
and bring it to a boil
boil till it reduces in half
add sugar
and mix well
add salt and mix well
boil..boil..boil
till it gets thick and darkens in colour
see it is a kind of thick and flowing consistency
switch off the flame and add lemon juice
and mix well
Let it cool ..then store in a container
Enjoy..

hello mam, i made half of this recpie added 50gms of more sugar but it is on bitter side, i dont know where i went wrong . i have followed your steps exactly. please help.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@meenakshi May be you must have squeezed the orange with the bitter taste. Dont add sugar in the begining. It should be added at the end.

Balu said... Best Blogger Tips

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Mine tastes little bit bitter. Can anyone tell me why so ??

OJam said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi, I made the orange jam a while ago but it's color was not the same as yours. can you help me on it ? And regarding the orange juice being place at kadai, how many minutes will i allow it to boil before turning to simmer ? hehe sorry if i'm asking too much but hope you'll notice me. thanks a lot. God Bless :)

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Mohit ChhabraYou got to add sugar once the juice is boiled for a while.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@OJamYou have to reduce it till it is more than half reduced then add sugar
