Cinnamon Orange Jam
(Tarcinli Portakal Receli)
4 (~1 kg) oranges, with thick skin
4 cups granulated sugar
1 lemon juice
1 cinnamon stick
Cook the oranges for about 45 minutes, drain. Cook for about 30 more minutes and drain. Let them cool down and put them into the freezer for about 2 hours. Cut them into tiny slices on a cutting board. Then cut every slice into 4. Cut the up and bottom parts off of the oranges (picture).
Place oranges, sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice in a medium pot. Melt the sugar at medium heat. First bring to boil, after 10 minutes, reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for about 7-8 more minutes. Discard the cinnamon stick. Place Cinnamon Orange Jam in jars.
It is recommendable to eat the Cinnamon Orange Jam with Turkish yogurt:)
