Orange Squash Recipe - How To Make Orange Squash At Home

orange squash recipe

Homemade orange squash recipe - learn to make orange squash at home without any preservatives and enjoy summer!

I don't buy store bought squash or jam as they are really easy to make at home and during summers I make with fruits that are available.  I like to use seasonal fruits and when orange was in season, I made this squash.

This squash has a nice colour and that was attained by adding the orange rind, so when you plan to make this squash try to buy orange with nice orangey rind.

As usual, I did not add any preservatives or food colour and I hope you will try it and enjoy as much as my family did.

Homemade Orange Squash Video Tutorial:

Orange: 6
Lemon: 4
Sugar: 1 kg
Water: 1 liter

Wash orange really well. Peel the orange and keep aside rind of 3 orange.
Put 3 orange rind in a sauce pan and fill with water, let this rind soak for 10 mins. After 10 mins, scrape off the inner white part of the rind. The orange rind is used to give a nice flavour and colour to the squash.
Cook the orange rind for about 10 mins with some water, once it has cooled down, grind it to a fine paste and keep aside.
Add the orange into a blender along with the lemon juice.
Pulse for 30-40 seconds on a blender and pour it into a strainer and squeeze out the juice. Keep the juice aside.
Into a pan add in the sugar and water and bring this to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, remove the impurities with a spoon. Simmer the flame for 10 mins and allow it to cool down completely.
Add the ground orange peel mix into the orange juice and mix well.
Now pour this mix into the sugar syrup through a sieve. Mix well. Homemade orange squash is ready and you can bottle this and keep in fridge.
