Get your hands working:

Peel or remove the skin from the oranges and separate into segments of the oranges. Place it in a jar.

On a separate pan, add zest of one orange (from one of the oranges), blood orange juice, maple syrup and vanilla paste. Bring it to a boil and simmer for 10 mins until the mixture get thicken. Keep stirring to prevent the contents from getting burnt.
