Initial Preparation:

  2. Add in the orange pieces, remaining 1 cup of sugar and mix well.
  3. Cook until the mixture begins to get thick on medium heat by stirring periodically.
  4. Once the jam begins to thick, lower the heat and stir continuously until the mixture turns to jam consistency.
  5. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly. Transfer to a glass jar and use as needed.

Tips :

  • To know the consistency of the jam, pour a drop of jam into a steel plate/glass.If it forms into a small pearl without any spreading, then its time to switch off the stove.
