1 quart ripe strawberries. 2 oranges. 1/2 lb. seeded raisins. 1/2 lb. chopped walnut meats. 1 lemon. 1 quart sugar.
Wash and drain the strawberries, then put them into a preserving kettle with the raisins, sugar, grated rinds and pulp of the lemon and oranges. Cook slowly for thirty minutes, then add the walnuts and cook for ten minutes longer.
Underripe strawberries. Sugar.
Use firm, perfect, slightly underripe fruit. Put into a preserving pan and let stand on the back of the range until the juice may be pressed out. Strain, and to each pint of juice allow one pound of sugar. Boil the juice for twenty minutes, add the sugar, which should have been heated in the oven, and boil for fifteen minutes longer.
Seal when cold.
