Texas Orange Jam

One of Ran's favorite jam recipes that I make is my Texas Orange Jam!

He likes this one a lot because its orange flavor is not overpowered by too much sugar.  

It's really easy!

Texas Orange Jam

8 oranges (navel)
4 c water
4 c sugar
Low Sugar Pectin

1.  Wash oranges

2.  Peel and cut into segments

3.  Remove seeds

4.  Feed babies that wander in and want a nibble.

5.  Cut into small chunks saving as much juice as you can.  You can also use a hand blender, but just to pulp it up...Don't liquify!

6.  Put in fridge overnight 

7.  Cook on medium high for 30 minutes

8.  Skim off the foam. 

 Ran eats it when I'm done!

9.  Add sugar and bring to boil

8.  Use a candy thermometer to check the temp gets to 220 degrees.

9.  Mix pectin with 1/4 c of sugar and stir into oranges

10.  Watch for the jam to cling to spoon and/or plate test it.  (Put a small plate in the freezer before you start boiling the oranges.  Put a dollop onto the plate to see if it wrinkles up after it begins to cool.)

11.  Pour into sterilized jars and process for 10 minutes.

Ta-Da!  Delicious Texas Orange Jam!

This jam will taste just as good with oranges from Florida, Louisiana, and maybe even...California!  Ha Ha!
