People always want to know: "What do I do with 13 kilos of oranges?" We just shake our heads and smile, because we all know that those 13 kilos will be gone in a flash. But if you actually find this amount to be a lot, you might want to try this recipe from one of our customers, Peter Schneider. It also works with other citrus fruits.
Wash the oranges well and trim off the ends. Finely dice the unpeeled fruit. Remove the seeds and place them in a small tea filter bag.
Weigh out 1 kg of the diced fruit, place it into a large pot or bowl and fill with 1.8 litres of water. Add the tea bag with the seeds and let it sit for 24 hours in a cool place.
Bring it to a boil and cook for about 1 hour. Allow it to cool and let it sit for another 24 hours.© P. Schneider
Now you can remove the bag with the seeds and give it a good squeeze. Weigh the mixture again and add roughly 650 g of jam sugar per kg of fruit mixture. Bring to a boil again and simmer for 1 hour. Test if the jam is set. The more seeds there were in the bag, the less sugar you need to use, since the seeds aid in the gelling process. You can add some agar-agar to help it along if necessary.
Ladle into hot sterilised jars and close them.
This recipe also works with other citrus fruits, such as our organic lemons! Many thanks to our customer Peter Schneider for the wonderful recipe and lovely photos.

Smallholders and local producers harvest and refine products of extraordinary quality worldwide. But for many of these producers there is no adequate or stable market. You can buy directly from these producers via the Access to Market Platform and help them to participate in the market. The principle behind this is crowd ordering – a new trade model whereby a number of consumers order a product together so as to achieve a minimum order quantity. We at gebana support the producers with our know-how, and organise the logistics.
Enable someone to make their first export with your order. Please note: Unexpected events often lead to delays, and you may find that the quality is not yet perfect. For this reason, your feedback is absolutely essential. The export experience and your feedback are important steps for the producers towards accessing the market. As a customer, you are witness to the whole process, playing your part in pioneering work.
You can order from these producers simply and directly. You receive your product as soon as the minimum order quantity has been reached and the products are ready. The risk for you is minimal, since the producers already have a product that is ready for market. This sales channel is beneficial to both the producers and the consumers, since it cuts out the middle man.
Be part of the development of supply chains and support innovation! Some of the ways you can do this include testing new products, giving feedback, or financially supporting the producers in their next steps. In doing so, you will be able to see for yourself how the products and supply chains develop.
This is where you can see all the completed projects on the Access to Market Platform at a glance. You can find out where products are now available from or whether the producers are still seeking a trade partner.
