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 ¾ 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. I’m not a fan of marmalade so I won’t 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.
