Orange Jam, Jelly and Preserves

Collection of orange jam recipesjump to the recipes

Jam is a thick, sweet spread made by cooking crushed fruit with sugar. It's firmer than jelly but used much in the same way. It can be made from a variety of fruits, including oranges.

Sweet oranges, commonly found in the grocery store, are often used in jams, jellies and preserves. Bitter oranges which are too bitter to eat raw also make great jam or marmalade.

The orange flavor pairs well with other fruits such as cranberries, pears, or other citrus flavors. While most of our recipes call for fresh oranges we have one great shortcut recipe that uses frozen orange juice concentrate. A few of the recipes call for pectin to thicken the preserves but most in this collection are made without it.

Uses for the jam include spreading on toast or muffins, as a fruit filling in between cake layers, or even heated up and used as a syrup on desserts or pancakes.
