Add the zest and juice to the saucepan. Put the saucepan on the fire and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook for 5-10 minutes, periodically skimming off the resulting foam. Leave the jam until evening and then cook for the same amount of time. In this way, boil two more times - the next morning and evening. During this time, the jam should boil well.
