Yield: 4 servings
|3 pounds||Of nectarines|
|4½ cup||Of sugar (2 1/4 pounds)|
Makes about 4 half-pints. Wash, blanch, peel and pit nectarines; wash the oranges. Remove the peel from 1½ of the oranges and discard it. Put the nectarines and the peeled and unpeeled oranges through a meat grinder. There should be about 4 ½ cups. Place the fruit in a preserving kettle, add 4 ½ cups of sugar and bring slowly to a boil. Boil rapidly, uncovered, for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Skim off foam with a metal spoon. Ladle into hot, sterilized jars and seal immediately.
To seal: Fill to within ½-inch head room, being sure to first wipe the rim and threads of the jars with a hot damp cloth to remove all particles of food, seeds or spices. While contents are hot, cover with a ⅛-inch layer of paraffin. When paraffin has set, add another layer of melted paraffin, tilting and rotating the jar to seal completely.
