Just in case you were wondering what to do with your Etrog once Sukkot is over and you’re done shaking it with the Lulav, here’s  a recipe for you:)

 Etrog Jam Recipe

Etrog Jam

  • 1 Etrog (citrus)
  • 1 Orange
  • Sugar
  • Water

Rinse the Etrog and orange. Cut them lengthwise and slice them very thinly. Remove the seeds. Soak the fruit overnight. Change the water (and make sure the fruit is fully covered). Place it in a pot and bring it to a boil. For a second time, change the water and bring to a boil again. Pour out the water, and weigh the fruit. Match with an equal amount of sugar. Cook over a low flame for about 45 minutes, or until it takes on a jam-like appearance.

Etrog jam has a strong and distinct flavor that will carry the spirit of Sukkot long into the year. Many people have the custom of saving this jam for the holiday of Tu B’shvat.
