Naartjie Mandarin Jam has a unique, brilliantly fresh flavor that works exceptionally well with all kinds of toast, croissants, scones, and biscuits.
- 600 g peel, finely sliced
- 200ml juice and pulp of the fruit
- 300 g sugar
- Star anise, 4
- Clove 4
- Pinch salt
- Allow fruit, peel, and sugar to stand overnight.
- Place the pot on the stove on the lowest setting and allow the sugar to liquefy.
- Stir well and turn up the heat to a medium setting.
- Bring to a boil and then allow to simmer until about half the liquid has evaporated.
- Turn off the heat and decant into sterilized jars.
- I like to add a cap full of brandy to the surface of the jam before sealing. This acts as a disinfectant and preservative.
- Allow cooling and label.
- Enjoy with toast and cottage cheese.

Mandarin jam sounds delicious. I’d not thought of pairing it with cottage cheese and toast though but that does sound yummy. #WotW
It’s super delicious for sure and you should give it a try. Thanks for popping in
I don’t think I have the patience but I’ve always wanted to make jam. This sounds delicious, I’m not sure if it would taste like jam or marmalade though?
Hi Anne. I truly hope you give this a try. If you do not try you will never know. I have made tons of jam years ago but now that we’re only two in the house do not make any as its a waste or us. The kids loved it when I made jam. Do try and let me know what you think. ENJOY
This sounds delicious, very fresh!
Hi Gail. It’s so delicious and I love Mandarin or as we call it in SA (although I am now in Canada) Naartjie. Super delicious for sure.
