4. Add the etrog slices and sugar to the thick bottomed pot. cook on low
fire until sugar melts.

5. Continue cooking on low fire while stirring from time to time. After 70-
80 minutes the etrog jam should have a jellied texture. If needed, cook
longer until it gels. Store in your refrigerator in glass jar.
