How to prepare a delicious orange marmalade at home in just a few simple steps to fill up on taste and vitamin C 

Oranges are the queens of winter. They not only have an intoxicating scent and a unique taste, but they represent a real natural supplement of Vitamin C, able to strengthen our immune system during periods and defend it from seasonal ailments. This fruit can be consumed in various ways: simply in wedges, in the form of juice or salad, for example together with fennel.

But the best way to preserve all the taste and extraordinary properties of orange is to prepare a delicious jam, to keep in the pantry and use to garnish pies, biscuits or to spread it on bread or rusks for breakfast to start with the right load. Let's find out how to prepare it at home in a light version, with no added sugar.

Ingredients 

  • 1 kg of oranges (preferably organic)
  • 1 apple (preferably organic)
  • 1 lemon (preferably organic)
  • 100ml maple syrup (optional)

Preparation 

First wash the oranges and lemon and peel them, removing the seeds and peelings of the oranges. Now cut them into pieces and transfer the cut fruit to a saucepan. Now wash the apple, remove the core and cut it into four wedges, adding it to the oranges and lemon. Use an immersion mixer to obtain a creamy and smooth mixture. Once you have the puree, add the maple syrup and turn on the flame, bringing it to a boil. Stir gently from time to time and cook for about an hour until the mixture has the typical consistency of jam.

Finally, all that remains is to transfer your still hot homemade jam into previously sterilized jars. Close them hermetically and turn them over to create the vacuum. The orange marmalade can be kept up to about 5 months in the pantry or in a cool and dry place. Once the jars have been opened, however, it should be placed in the fridge and consumed within 4/5 days.


Bon appetit!
