I can't figure out where the two days comes in? Does it soften, or what? Does it mean I'll have to wait 2 days to do the jam recipe?

Yes macerating the orange zest in the orange pulp and juice helps to extract maximum flavor and softens the peel. If you want to speed up the process, maybe you can leave it overnight or 12 hours.
