Orange Jam

Orange Jam:
Today is the 4th day of my blogging marathon and successfully I have climbed 7 floors for the 4th day.

Orange Jam is made with the fruit. Thanks a lot to Srivalli as she did not give an entry I have understood what made her not to give an entry to me. Thanks for my colleague, friend, well-wisher - Davameena and Poornima who passed on a proper comment stating that my posts are good only from this marathon. Yep an healthy criticism could change a life.

Oranges strangely enough, did not get it's name from its colour but rather from an ancient Sanskrit word meaning "fragrant". In fact, people have prized this golden fruit for its beauty and scent for years

Three ways oranges keeps you Healthy
a. Boost you immune system
b. Banishes pneumonia
c. Helps prevent Cancer "Big C"

Ingredients:
Orange - 2
Water - 2 cups
Sugar - 100 gms

Method:
Peel off the skin from Orange and use it to make Orange Iced Cold Tea or something out of it. 
Use the peeled orange fruit for this jam.
Cut it into small pieces (as much small as u can) and put it in water atleast for 20 hours.


I blended the mixture after 20 hours along with the same water.
Measure the mixture and add equal amount of sugar keep it aside
Cooked in medium flame for 30 minutes. The liquid will boil and become half of it.
Then add sugar to the boiling mixture slowing by stirring.
Leave the sugar to dissolve and keep stirring occasionally.
Once the foam is formed check the consistency and keep stirring so that the bottom wouldn't burn
Take a drop and check if it is like a heavy dropping one then switch off the stove.
Store it in air tight container.

Preparation Time: 24 hours + 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
I could prepare 100gms of jam with 2 small oranges.


How much I have got motivated is here:




I did Orange Iced Cold Tea in the office yesterday. So I had cut the oranges into small pieces and put it in water cups then I shifted them into my water bottle. Just to prepare this and doesn't wanted to miss my marathon I got up at 4:45am and started working on it since 5:30am. My little son Aadya got up, holding him I could work on this and it got completed exactly by my MIL got up at 6:15am. I mean my gratitude to Srivalli and her mail which said "Since I make it a mandatory rule for everybody to comment, it should be made a wasted journey"
Snapshot of her mail


Yep taken it in a right manner I could start up with this blogging marathon called Hema's Adugemane Marathon.
