Chase the winter blues with a fresh batch of homemade Mandarin Orange Jam. This quick and easy to make jam recipe uses just five ingredients!


  • 3 lbs (1.4 kg) mandarin oranges
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger


  1. Peel the oranges and break them up into a few sections. Puree in a blender or food processor.
  2. Pour the pureed oranges into a pan and stir in the sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and ginger.
  3. Let the fruit boil gently over medium heat for about 40 minutes stirring occasionally. It will foam up at first but after a little while it will stir together and clear up.
  4. While the jam is cooking thoroughly wash or sterilize four half pint jars and lids.
  5. When the jam is ready dip one cup into each jar and let it cool for 5-10 minutes. Screw the lids on and let it sit on the counter until cool.
  6. Keep in the fridge for a week or the freezer for several months.
