Strawberry and Orange Marmalade
With this jam, a guilty conscience is out of place, because it only needs as much sugar as necessary. 1:1 gelling sugar is usually used, usually in a ratio of 1:1, i.e. as much sugar as fruit. Thanks to the 3:1 gelling sugar, you can create jams that are less sweet but still super fruity. Oranges and strawberries also provide vitamin C, which is actively involved in the defence against viruses and bacteria.
You can also cook this delicious jam outside the strawberry season: It works just as well with frozen fruit.
