Nasturtium Orange Jam

To capture this beauty you need to know that flowering time of nasturtium lasts for several months: mid spring until late fall. If you make orange jam  before, no problem. Just bring orange jam prepared earlier to boil on medium heat and add chopped nasturtium petals into it, let it boil for few minutes and here it is.
Nasturtium petals give beautiful crimson shade to orange jam that is lightly bitter and makes completely different taste than Nasturtium Elderflower Jam .  Freshly made, it fits Spanish almond biscuits, Rosegones,  just fine.
Later on, during the year, this jam could be used for Christmas cookies or glaze to any cheesecake or a fruit pie.
My friend A and her two children were very helpfull with this jam. They have a huge  „Naturtium corner“ in their garden so they picked the flowers and drove them fresh to my home so I could make the jam. Of course, they are my loyal food tasters. We get fat together.
