Ingredients

  • 10
    Valencia or Seville oranges
  • 3
    lemons
  • 5
    Litres
    cold water
  • 4
    kg
    white sugar
  • 60
    ml
    whisky (optional)
 

Method

 
1. Wash oranges and lemons, halve them and squeeze out juice. Remove pips and slice rind finely. Put the juice and sliced rind into a bowl, add water and leave for 24 hours for rind to soften. 2. Pour into a heavy-based saucepan. Bring to the boil very slowly and continue to boil until almost half the liquid has boiled away (about 2 hours). 3. When sufficiently reduced, add sugar and whisky. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Boil rapidly for a further 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally, until mixture sets when tested on a cold plate. 4. Allow to cool slightly (for 2 or 3 minutes), then pour into clean, warm jars. When quite cold, cover with a disc of greaseproof paper dipped in brandy. Cover tightly with lid.
