The recipe for Zest Jam. Calorie, chemical composition and nutritional value.

Ingredients Zest Jam

orange peel 400.0 (gram)
sugar 400.0 (gram)
water 100.0 (gram)
Method of preparation

Buy one and a half kilograms – two oranges and eat them. As the oranges are eaten, put the peel in a 3-liter jar of cold water, change the water in the morning, in the evening and 2-3 times in the afternoon (in the hot season and more often, the peels can sour). The crusts must be soaked in order to remove the bitterness from them. After three days (counting from the first orange, when the peel is about half a can), remove the peels from the water and cut into small (0.5 cm) squares, rhombuses, triangles and other geometric shapes. Throw away pieces with dark spots, do not regret it. The prepared crusts must be weighed. Take 400 grams of sugar for 400 grams of raw materials. Dissolve the sugar in a little water, boil and pour the crusts with boiling syrup. Then cook like a regular jam in 2-3 doses until tender (let it boil for 5 minutes, remove from heat, cool down – let it boil for 5 minutes, and so on). The jam is ready when the white part of the crusts becomes transparent, and the crusts themselves are soft.
