We now actively sell the remains of the Christmas stocks of tangerines and oranges. It's time to cook a delicious jam and citrus to make a template for the pastries and desserts. In the course of going all pulp and peel. The most delicious jam obtained from thin-skinned fruit. Adjust amount of sugar according to your taste.
Tangerine wash, four or five pieces to postpone the rest to clean and disassemble into slices. Deferred tangerines cut into four pieces with peel. All together, grind in a blender or skip through Mincer. Put the mass into a bowl for jam ( I have thick-walled pan, add sugar, stir and put on fire.
While the jam is boiling, finely chop the zest into small pieces and cover with boiling water. Allow to stand for five minutes and drain off water. Put in a heatproof dish, place sugar, add 200 ml of water and put in the microwave for 8 minutes at 600 watts of power. Anyone have a MW oven, in a pot for cooking jam put on the stove and bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, we begin to boil the jam. Skim off the foam. Now add our "pectin". I have this "Selfix" 1:3 (this means that in a jam you can put the sugar in three times less than normal). The bag is designed for 1 kg of pulp. Existing pectin thickener, add according to instructions on the pack. ATTENTION! Pectin is a completely natural product derived either from citrus fruits or from apples. Therefore, all of the above thickeners do not carry any harm to neither child nor adult body (with the exception of an Allergy to citrus fruits).
Give the jam to cook for 5-10 minutes, add a few cloves stamens and hot pour in the banks. Banks I don't sterilize, just rinse with boiling water. Banks on the day put in a cold place. For a day or two the jam thickens.
While we were making jam, brown managed to soak in the syrup. Once we put them in the MW oven for 6 minutes at 500 watts of power, or again, bring to the boil. Hot spread in jars and cover with a warm blanket until morning. How many stores can't say, usually goes very quickly and in stuffing, and as jam.
