(Preserved Fruit) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

The white part between the yellow rind and the inner skin of the orange
used to be most sedulously removed, but now we know that there is great
economy in using it. By doing so we can use large quantities of water in
proportion to fruit, for it has the property of converting this into
The Seville orange used to be the orange used in Scotland and England
for marmalades because of its bitter flavor, but we can get the same
effect by using the grapefruit. An all grapefruit marmalade is not
nearly so attractive and pretty as one of combined fruits, nor does it
have the zest that the grapefruit seems to give to a marmalade where it
is only one of the constituents.

Other Recipes


Cut three pounds of pie plant into small pieces (unpeeled). Peel three
oranges and cut into small pieces. Put with this two cups of sugar and
the grated rind of one orange. Let stand overnight. Cook until clear,
stirring often. Then add three pounds of granulated sugar heated in
oven. Cook until clear; ten to twenty minutes. Pour into jelly glasses
and cover with paraffin.

Other Recipes


Slice whole oranges very thin and cut in short pieces after washing
them. Save the seeds. To each pound of sliced oranges add 3 pints of
cold water and let stand 24 hours. Then boil all together until the
chipped rinds are tender. All the seeds should be put in a muslin bag
and boiled with the oranges. Allow all to stand together until next
day, then remove the bag of seeds, and to every pound of boiled fruit
add a half pound of sugar. Boil continuously, stirring all the time,
until the chips are quite clear and the syrup thick as honey on being
dropped on a cold dish. The grated rind and juice of 2 lemons will
improve the taste of marmalade if added at last boiling. When cooked
sufficiently the marmalade should be clear. Pour at once into glass
jars and cover closely.

Other Recipes


To eighteen ripe oranges, use six pounds best white sugar. Grate the
peel from four oranges; reserve for marmalade. (The rinds of the
remainder will not be used). Pare the fruit, removing the white skin
as well as the yellow; slice the oranges; remove all seeds. Put the
fruit and grated peel into a preserving kettle; boil until reduced to
a smooth mass; rub quickly through a colander; stir in the sugar;
return to the stove; boil fast, stirring constantly, one-half hour, or
until thick. Put in glasses, or jars; cover closely when cold.
