"1. Osmanthus jam is usually used as topping and filling of Chinese dessert. 2. There are many receipts of making osmanthus jam. You can just use sugar or just use honey. 3. Pickling osmanthus with salt is to remove the astringent flavor of the flower, this step can also help the flower sterilized. 4. Adding lemon peels is aimed to add sour flavor,you can also use shredded salted plum meat. 5. Store it into refrigerator after 7 days kept in room temperature."

    Wash the fresh osmanthus flower with clean water and filter out the water. Put the washed osmanthus flowers into a sieve and shake the sieve softly until most pedicles fell off. I recommend you watch an episode of animation while shaking your sieve.If you use the dried osmanthus flowers ,soak them into normal temperature water until they are unfolded and soft(1 hour or less),drain the water off.
