Clementines and citrus jam

Production: 5 – 1/2 pint  Jars
Preparation: 45 Minutes
Cooking: 45 Minutes
Canning (boilling bath): 10 Minutes minutes in a boilling water bath

A sunny and light jam to brighten our dark winter mornings.
Much simpler to prepare and much less bitter than traditional marmalade, this jam is sure to please fans of citrus … and gourmands of all kinds.

The addition of vanilla caviar is optional but adds a nice touch of flavor that goes well with the fruit flavors.
You can also adjust the amount of julienned zest to your taste. The more you use and your jam will be more dense and a touch of bitterness will become more noticeable.

Note: citrus jams are quite slow to gel after sterelisation. Wait at least 48hrs, without moving the jars, to give it the time to take.
