Spiced Loquats
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 pounds partially ripe loquats
1 cup boiling water
1 lemon -- sliced
1 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon whole cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
4 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Wash loquats, remove seeds and measure 2 quarts. Steam in the boiling
water for 3 minutes to prevent shriveling. Add remaining ingredients and
boil 10 minutes. Let stand overnight.

Bring to a boil again, and cook until syrup is thick. Pour into hot
sterilized jars, and seal.

This recipe yields about 5 half-pint jars.
