Easter Calendar 2022 - orange jam with ginger & vanilla


Today it is Good Friday (Langfredag) being the second day of the Danish Easter vacation. So today, I will enjoy my vacation time making some home-made jam from orange for my Easter Calendar 2022.

I will be selling some of the jam jars at work to my colleagues, as I cannot eat 6-8 glasses of jam within reasonable time. And as usual I will donated the money to charity (Julemærkehjemmene).

Orange jam with ginger & vanilla:
 6 glasses.

  • 6 organic oranges with thin peel
  • 2 organic lemons
  • 600 g sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • potassium sorbate - optional
  1. Wash the orange thoroughly.
  2. Cut of bottom and top of two of the oranges and throw away.
  3. Cut the these two orange incl. the peel into small pieces. Remove any seeds. Place the orange pieces and the orange juice into the cooking pot.
  4. Do the cutting of the oranges on a chopping board, so all the orange juice can be collected and used in the jam mixture.
  5. Grate the zest of the remaining oranges and lemon, and add the orange & lemon zest into the cooking pot.
  6. Peel the orange & lemon, and afterwards cut the oranges and lemon into smaller pieces. Remove the orange seeds during the coating process, as they will give more bitterness in the final jam. Add orange & lemon pieces together with the juice into the cooing pot.
  7. Add freshly grated ginger and vanilla powder  together with sugar into the cooking pot.
  8. Bring the jam to the boiling pot. Let it simmer gentle for 15 minutes under lid.
  9. Remove the lid from the cooking pot, and the jam simmer for another 15 minutes.
  10. Use a blend to get a more homogenous texture. 
  11. Prepare the jam jars by filling them up with the boiling water.
  12.  Stir in potassium sorbate, before you fill the jam into the jam jars.
  13. Fill the jam into the jam jars. Close the glass with a lid.
  14. Store at ambient temperature.
