Winter is almost here so its citrus are expected! Today, we will make a clementine jam, flavored with mint, cinnamon and orange blossom water.

Clementine is a variety of mandarin orange which is very easy to peel, like a tangerine, but is almost always seedless. Clementines are typically juicy and sweet, with less acid than oranges.

Ingredients: Clementine Jam recipe

Specific ingredients:

You can order these ingredients easily and quickly on Amazon:

For 4 to 5 pots of 250 g:

  • 2 lbs (1 kg) of clementines
  • 4 1/2 cups (600 g) of sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of orange flower water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1.5 tbsp of cinnamon
  • 12 mint leaves


The recipe is very similar to the orange marmalade recipe.

Brush the clementines under water if they are treated. Cut the ends on a ½ cm thick. Cut into quarters and then cut them in fans.

In a heavy saucepan, heat 20 ml of water, sugar, cinnamon, orange blossom water, mint leaves and lemon juice. Cook for 10 minutes. Then add the clementines and cinnamon sticks. Cook for 20 minutes. Remove the cinnamon sticks.
To check for doneness of marmalade, place the value of a teaspoon on a plate. If it freezes, it is cooked.
Mix marmalade to obtain a smooth mixture.
Pour the hot jam into jars with lids. Close and return the pots, cover down. After 15 minutes, place the pots on the right side.
This technique allows to seal the jars. They will keep closed in the dark for 1 year. After opening, keep refrigerated and consume quickly.

My advice:
Preferably use untreated clementines.
