  1. Take off the peels of two of the best oranges. Cook the peels for 15 minutes in water at a low boil, then cool them by plunging them in cold water. Strain and slice into fine strips, set aside.
  2. Peel the rest of the oranges, removing the white parts, cut them into pieces, remove the seeds and membranes, and weigh out 1.2kg.
  3. Mix the flesh of the oranges, cooked orange peel, sugar and fresh ginger in your jam pan and bring to a boil.
  4. Cooking time from this point: 7 minutes if using jam sugar, otherwise 20-30 minutes. Maintain at a boil, stirring often.
  5. Check if ready by pouring out a few drops onto a cold plate and tipping the plate - the orange jam should trickle slowly down the plate.
  6. Skim the aphrodisiac mixture and immediately pour into jars. Seal the jars and turn them upside down for 1 minute, then turn them back over and leave them to cool.
