Orange Marmalade
Makes 10 jars of our items G265, or G044J (80 oz. total)

1 3/4 pounds oranges (about 4 to 5 medium)
1 lemon, zest finely grated and juiced
6 cups water
8 cups sugar

Directions
1. Cut oranges into 1/8-inch slices, removing the seeds as you go. Stack the orange slices and quarter. Place the oranges into pot. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, and water to the pot. Over high heat, bring to a boil, approximately 10 minutes. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 40 minutes or until the fruit is very soft.

2. Prepare hot water bath, sanitize jars and wash plastisol lids

3. Place a small plate in the freezer. Increase the heat under the orange mixture to return to full boil. Add the sugar stirring continually. Mixture is ready once it reaches 220 to 224 degrees F or darkens in color, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Test the readiness of the marmalade by placing a teaspoon of the mixture onto the chilled plate and allowing it to sit for 30 seconds. Tilt the plate. The mixture should be a soft gel that moves slightly. If mixture is thin and runs easily, it is not ready.

4. Fill sanitized jars to just below the bottom of the threads of each jar. The amount of marmalade may vary by 1 to 2 jars. Wipe the rims and threads of the jars with a moist towel and top each with a plastisol lid.

5. Place jars in hot water bath, making sure there is space between jars Add additional water if necessary to cover the jars by at least an inch. Boil for 10 minutes. Using canning tongs carefully remove the jars from the water. Let marmalade sit at room temperature for at least 24 hours. Once open, store in the refrigerator. Store in a cool dry place.

How do you like your cucumbers?
Recipe makes 7 jars of items G014, G015, or G016 (224 oz. total)
8 pounds small pickling cucumbers
4 cups water
4 cups distilled white vinegar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup pickling salt
3 tablespoons pickling spice, wrapped in cheesecloth
7 1-quart canning jars with lids
7 heads fresh dill
7 cloves garlic
1. Place cucumbers in a large pot and cover with ice cubes. Let them sit for at least 2 hours but no longer than 8. Drain and pat dry.
2. Place the water, vinegar, sugar, pickling salt, and pickling spice into a saucepan. Bring to boil, and simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Sterilize the jars in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack the cucumbers into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/2 inch of the top. Add 1 dill head and 1 clove of garlic into each jar. Pour the hot pickling liquid into the jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the rim. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist towel to remove any residue. Top with washed plastisol lids.
4. Carefully lower the jars into hot water bath. Leave space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary until the water level is at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a full boil, cover the pot, and process for 10 minutes
5. Remove the jars from the water bath and place onto a wood surface. Allow time to cool. Store in a cool, dark area, and wait at least 1 week before opening.
