Homemade Hot Orange and Ginger Drink
When you read my previous post about my overcooked and hardened orange jam, didn't you say in your mind, "Oh, Obachan! You can solve the problem real easy!"
I guess some of you did, but were hesitant to say it aloud until today.
Don't worry any more. I found the solution myself.
All I needed to do was adding some hot water into the jar of my orange jam, then microwaving it for a couple of minutes and stirring it thoroughly. It worked just like that. The jam is now properly runny and easy to handle!! :D And now it is much easier to make hot orange drink with it.
Actually I tried to make the drink before I found that solution -- when the jam was still as hard as soft candy. Yep, it took me a while to scoop the jam (candy) out of the jar and place it at the bottom of the cup. AND it took even longer to dissolve it in hot water. :(
And the drink looked like this when some boiling water and grated ginger were added!
And the best part is ... YES! Eating the flesh of the oranges that sank to the bottom of the cup!!
