Trifolate Orange Marmalade or I Swear this is the Last Canning Post for a While
In searching for something to do with my found treasures I learned that these are not true oranges, being from a diferent genus in the orange family, and that eating them raw can cause gastric distress. They are recommended for making marmalade.
Undaunted I decided to suplement my bitter/sour juice with an equal amount of orange juice and the pulp of 3 oranges. I then chopped the peelings from the trifolates and one of the oranges and combined them with the juice/pulp and boiled for 5 minutes. This I allowed to sit overnight in the fridge. I don't know why it needs to sit, but the Ball Blue Book said to, so I did.
