  • 950 grams blood oranges
  • 1/2 medium lemon
  • 1 cup water
  • 300 grams jam setting sugar
  • 3 drops vanilla essence


  • Place oranges in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for 10-20 minutes.
  • Using a vegetable peeler, peel half of the oranges and then chop that rind into small strips. Place these strips in a large saucepan.
  • Peel the rind from all of the oranges and remove as much pith as possible. Chop oranges into small pieces, removing any seeds. Place chopped oranges in saucepan.
  • Chop the half lemon into small pieces, removing as much of the rind, pith and seeds as possible. Place chopped pieces in saucepan.
  • Add water and vanilla essence to saucepan. Bring to the boil and allow to boil steadily for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add sugar. Return to heat and stir to dissolve. Bring back to the boil and allow to boil rapidly for 5 minutes.
  • Pour into sterilised jars (I use dishwasher to sterilise). Allow to cool and then store in fridge.
