About Chinese Orange Marmalade Recipe

Every year, the orange tree in my garden yields so many small Chinese mandarins. The fruit in itself is so bitter in taste that you cannot have it in its pure form. So this time around, I tried my hands on making a jam from them. I did not particularly have any recipe for the same, so started searching for it on Google. Found 2 interesting recipes on Rajee Sood's blog and Jo’s blog. I took inspiration from their recipes and formulated my own combining the 2 recipes.

Ingredients to make Chinese Orange Marmalade

  • Chinese Oranges/mandarins - I used approximately 25 oranges
  • sugar to taste
  • lemon juice 1-2 tbsp
  • water just enough to cover and cook the oranges

How to make Chinese Orange Marmalade

  1. Wash and dry the oranges. Cut them into two halves and remove all the seeds.
  2. Slice the oranges into thin slivers. Do not remove the skin.
  3. Now put water and oranges together in a pan and bring to a boil and cook on a high flame for 5 minutes.
  4. Turn flame to medium heat and keep on cooking until most of the water evaporates.
  5. Add the sugar to taste and keep on stirring continuously on low flame, till all the water evaporates.
  6. Put a spoon in the jam and if the back of the spoon comes out coated sticky, then the marmalade is ready. There may be some bubbles in the jam, which will settle on cooling.
  7. Once the jam cools a bit, add lemon juice as a preservative. Store in an air tight glass jar.

My Tip:

You can test if your jam is set by spooning a dollop of it onto a cold plate that has been chilled in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Leave it for a minute or so before you run your finger through it, it should wrinkle and not flood back.
