The Chinese orange, also known as dwarf orange is a very special fruit. For this reason, it is gaining more and more popularity in our country.

It is a citrus that is normally eaten with the skin, which is where we can find the sweet part. As a consequence, I especially like this preparation, since we find pieces of the skin in the jam, which I love. It gives it a homey and rustic touch.

Therefore, we find a traditional recipe very easy to make that will surely not leave anyone indifferent.
