【格外農品】青皮椪柑果茶醬Green Ponkan Marmalade
The ingredients of green ponkan jam include only ponkan, extra light sugar, lemon juice, and no added pectin. We select ponkans with uneven color and a little bruise on the skin but the quality remains the same.
The process is firstly smashing the ponkans, secondly picking out the seeds manually, then cooking the flesh , and adding some skin which has been sugared in order to enrich the flavor, the mouthfeel, and enhance the jelly feeling, and, moreover, little bitterness and essential oil odorant of oranges are preserved. The jam applies to making hot tea or using in fish dishes.
This product is vacuum packed. A jar of the unopened ponkan jam can be preserved for 12 months at room temperature. After opening it, please preserve it in a refrigerator and finish eating it as soon as possible.
The green ponkan are from Nanliao in Tainan. They are the earliest harvested oranges in Taiwan. Nanliao is situated on the downsun side of Mountain Dadong with an elevation of more than 300 meters. Because the temperature drops drastically at night since the start of fall and the farmer Mr. Chun-Nan Hou perseveres in not using antacids so that the ponkan have more time to ripen naturally. The green ponkan from Nanliao have moderate sourness, sweetness, and enriched flavors. Mr. Hou utilizes probiotics to improve the soil and prevent plant diseases, so he earned TAP (Traceability Agricultural Product) certification, and he plants the oranges with little pesticide used in an earth friendly manner.
