1.5 kg of oranges (preferably organic oranges, not sprayed)
1 red sweet pepper about 200 g
3 - 4 chili peppers, about 100 g
juice from 1 large lemon
200 ml of water
125 ml of apple or cider vinegar
700 g of sugar
Oranges are peeled very thinly (without white albedo). Cut the peeled skin into thin strips, the so-called julienne. Peel the oranges from the remaining white skin, cut into pieces and remove the stones.
Cut the peppers in half and remove the seeds. Chop the chili finely, cut the sweet red pepper into small cubes.
Pour water and vinegar into a pot, add peppers, orange zest and lemon juice. Bring it to the boil, reduce the heat as soon as it reaches the boil and simmer it for about 5 minutes. Add chopped oranges and sugar. Cook over medium heat for about 2 hours, until the desired consistency is obtained. Put the hot jam into the scalded jars and close them tightly. Place the jars upside down until they cool down. We can also pasteurize jam in jars.
Enjoy your meal!
