Orange Lemon Marmalade
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 oranges
2 lemons
2 1/2 cups water
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 package Ball 100% Natural Fruit Jell Pectin
6 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Prepare Ball brand or Kerr brand jars and closures according to
instructions found in Canning Basics.

Remove peel from oranges and lemons, reserve fruit. Scrape off white pith
and discard. Thinly slice peel. In a medium saucepot, combine orange and
lemon peel, water and baking soda. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and
simmer, covered, 20 minutes. Remove seeds and any white membrane from
oranges and lemons. Finely chop fruit. Add fruit to peel and return to a
boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 10 minutes.

Measure five cups of prepared fruit. Combine prepared fruit and pectin in
a large saucepot. Bring to a rolling boil. Stir in sugar and nutmeg;
return to a rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary. Stir for five minutes. Ladle
hot marmalade into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe jar rim
clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass. Screw band
down evenly and firmly just until a point of resistance is met --
fingertip tight. Process 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

This recipe yields about 6 half-pints.
