Orange Paste
« on: June 03, 2012, 03:39:48 am »
Orange Paste
   Influenced by the Pear Paste recipe from the Thermomix Website.

Peel 3 large Navel Oranges, removing as much of the pith as you can.
Quarter them and remove any seeds. Chop in the TM on speed 9 for about 6 seconds. Add 100 grams of water. Cook on 100˚ for 20 minutes speed 2.
   Pour into another container then weigh back into jug and add of the weight in sugar, (e.g.for 500gm of pulp add 375 grams of sugar).
Cook on 100˚ speed 2 for 1 hour and 45 minutes.
Pour into containers and allow to cool.
Store in fridge and keep for as long as you can resist it.

You could remove the zest of the oranges first and chop on speed 8 for 6 seconds, then add it into the mix during the final cooking stage. It does give the paste a tang much like marmalade. I tried this the first time I made it thinking it would be a stronger orange flavour. Im not a fan of marmalade so I wont be doing that again.
   
I know one and three quarter hours is a long time but after one hour I did a set test every 15 minutes and this timing had the best results. 
Enjoy.

Yep Just like quince paste, have it with soft cheeses like brie or camembert and a glass of port to finish a meal. Or minus the port for a posh afternoon tea.

Interesting! Just that bit different, too. I'll be trying this as I have some oranges from my sister's trees. I wonder what mandarin or grapefruit paste would be like?
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

I don't like marmalade very much. You said this is quite different so I might give it a try.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Have you got the cane out Uni? You could just sit it in the corner or on the bench as a warning.  :) :)
