Bill and Hazel, Thanks they worked exactly as you said. Haven't found any failures to seal.

Learned another thing too. I used a "Cajon Caddilac" [sp?] to boil the water; at 100000 BTU/hr, the water doesn't even stop boiling as you add new jars. My home range is 15000 BTU full on and it doesn't compare. These jars were processed for 5-7 min.

Recipe, well we just sort of did it but I'll try.

36# of Seville Oranges
juice into a container catching all the seeds and pulp.These rinds will be cleaned of pulp and then sliced. We cut about 1/3 of the rind about 2" by maybe an 1/8th inch, the rest around 1". We only put in 3/4 of the rind as we thought that about the right amount.
Combine all the juice in a jam pan and add the sliced rind. Then put all the seeds and pulp in a cheese cloth wrap and simmer. When this got to simmer we cooked it about 4 hours ar maybe a bit longer. It had thickened quite a bit, then we slowly stirred in sugar to taste. 7-8#.

Then remove the Seed bag and discard.

On tasting we all agreed it was too bitter so we added the juice of 8 Meyer Lemons, smoothed it right out.

Finish amount about 11 Qt.

I'm jealous. I really like a bittersweet orange marmalade. Hope you get to enjoy it over the better part of the next two years

And you got the oranges in February? Super.
I actually got them from Town and Country Market here in town. I think they were $30 bucks per 18# box but Welcome to RipeToYou.com
is the link to the growers on line sales. They with shipping wanted $45 per 15# box on-line. I just ask the Green grocer in the Central Mkt and he said he'd get them. 2 days later....

Gentlemen, if you want to make Seville orange Marmalade all year round go on amazon and search for Hartleys Ma Made my Mum used it, I use it, the results are fantastic it is very simple to make. It saves me from having to make a years supply in one go. I dont like using tinned product but Ma Made ranks at the top along with Eazionions, I kid you not this is the best invention since sliced bread.
Ps I put in a spoonfull of whisky just before I jar it
