Cranberry Marmalade
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 medium oranges
1 medium lemon
1 1/2 cups water
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 pound fully-ripe cranberries
6 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 bottle certo fruit pectin

First, prepare fruit. Cut 2 medium oranges and 1 medium lemon in
quarters. Remove seeds. Grind the fruit, chop fine or slice crosswise
wafer thin. Add 1 1/2 cups water and 1/8 teaspoon baking soda. Simmer,
covered, 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 pound fully ripe
cranberries; simmer, covered, 10 minutes. Measure 5 cups into a very
large saucepan.

To the measured fruit in saucepan, add the exact amount of sugar specified
in the recipe. Mix well.

Place over high heat, bring to a full rolling boil and boil hard 1 minute,
stirring constantly. Remove from heat; at once stir in Certo. Skim off
foam with metal spoon. Then stir and skim for 7 minutes to cool slightly
and prevent floating fruit.

Ladle into glasses. Cover at once with 1/8-inch hot parrafin.

This recipe yields about 8 3/4 cups marmalade.
