Date Marmalade

3 lbs. stoned dates. 1 lb. dried apples. 1 lb. (2 cups) sugar. 1 1/2 pints (3 cups) water.

Wash the apples and soak them over night in water; next morning drain, cut them into small pieces, and mix with dates. Add sugar and water, and boil thirty minutes.

Seal in glasses.

Another Method: Stone two and one-half pounds of dates, add six cupfuls of water and simmer until dates are soft. Add one pound of sugar and mix well. Remove from fire and add one-half pound of chopped English walnut meats.

Pear And Pineapple Marmalade

4 quarts pears. 4 lbs. (8 cups) sugar. 2 large pineapples.

Pare, core and quarter the pears; pare the pineapples and carefully remove the eyes.

Put them through a food chopper into a porcelain-lined pan, add the sugar and boil until clear.

Seal in glasses.
