The elaboration of the tangerine jam It is very, very simple. The first thing you should do is peel all the tangerines (except 2) and remove all the seeds inside, as well as as much of the white fibers as they have attached to each of its segments. It is best to leave the tangerines as clean as possible.

Then take the 2 tangerines that you have not peeled and scratch your skin or remove it and then cut it as strips, whichever you prefer. The grated skin of these tangerines will serve to give a special decorative touch to the marmalade, as well as a much more intense tangerine aroma. Do not forget to leave the segments of these tangerines completely clean.

Place all the mandarin segments in a fairly large and large pot, add the sugar and juice of a lemon, which you must have previously extracted with the help of a juicer. Keep in mind that in this recipe we have recommended you add half the sugar according to the weight of the amount of fruit used, but you can modify the amounts according to whether you prefer to obtain a more or less sweet jam.

Place the heat at a medium temperature and let everything cook until you see that the sugar has dissolved properly. This process will take about 10 minutes, and after that time the heat goes down a little so that everyone the ingredients are cooked for at least 30 or 45 minutes and finish integrating with each other. Go stirring the mixture occasionally to avoid sticking in the bottom of the pot.
