Mrs. J. Young Scammon.
One dozen Seville oranges, one dozen common oranges, one dozen lemons ; boil the oranges and lemons whole in water for five hours ; scoop out the inside, removing the seeds ; cut the peel into thin slices with a knife, and add to every pound of pulp and peel a pint of water and two pounds of sugar. Boil twenty minutes.
Mrs. Wm. Brackett.
Take seven oranges and five lemons; boil in water two or three hours; throw away the water, and open the oranges and lemons, taking out the seeds and preserving all the pulp and juice possible; cut the rinds in small strips or chop them, but cutting in strips is better; weigh it all, when this is done; then put three pounds of sugar to two of the pulp, and boil slowly till clear.
