Yuja-cheong (유자청; 柚子淸), also called yuja marmalade, is a marmalade-like cheong made by sugaring yuja (Citrus junos). It is used as a tea base for yuja-cha (yuja tea), as a honey-or-sugar-substitute in cooking, and as a condiment.[1][2][3]


Yuja-cheong can be made by sugaring peeled, depulped, and thinly sliced yuja.
