I love oranges!

 Orange tart witch apricot

Recipe by Komarka from beautiful

Ever since I found this recipe, it did not give peace and after I made it, it did not disappoint. The tart is divine! The only modification we introduced to this is to add dried apricots, which I love on a par with oranges.

250 g of flour

125 g of butter

pinch of salt

1 egg

3 tablespoons sugar

zest of orange peel


2 handfuls of dried apricots
can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of Mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup of juice squeezed from oranges
squeezed juice of ½ lemon
5 egg yolks
zest of 2 oranges 
1/4 cup whipping cream

All ingredients quickly knead the dough and leave to cool in the refrigerator for an hour. Then put the crust into the mold, grated (preferably with removable bottom). Bake  for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Boil apricots in water, leave them for a few minutes to soak in the water, then drain and cool. Blend egg yolks with condensed milk. Then add the mascarpone cheese, orange juice and lemon and mix everything. At the end, add whipped cream, and mix together. Put apricots on the baked crust and put on the orange mass. Bake for about 25 minutes.

Orange Mousse - Jam

Wonderfully aromatic with a delicate hint of bitter taste. The big advantage is that there's very little sugar in it.Wonderful for cakes, pancakes, and to eat with a spoon straight from the jar :)


10 oranges

1 cup sugar

squeezed lemon juice

Wash and scrub the oranges with brush,then peel and cut into thin slices, turn  each slice on the half quarter.Take outer peel and  toss it into the pot with thick bottom then add cut oranges.Add sugar and lemon juice.Cook and stir on the stove for about 30 minutes, then remove from the heat and allow it to cool (you can wait until the next day). Then mix in blender.Pour mousse into the pot and boil until it thickens.
