Amount Measure Ingredient Features
12 small limes
5 each lemons
1.1 l sugar
2 1/4 pounds


Makes about 6 half-pints.

Wash and remove the seeds of the limes and lemons and put fruits through a food chopper or cut in small pieces.

Measure the pulp and add 3 cups of water for each cup of pulp; let stand overnight.

The next morning, boil the mixture, uncovered, in a preserving kettle about 20 minutes.

Remove mixture to a bowl, cover and let stand again overnight The next morning, measure citrus mixture.

Cooking batches of only 4 to 6 cups of fruit at a time, measure out ¾ cup of sugar for each cup of fruit and combine fruit and sugar in a preserving kettle.

Bring mixture slowly to a boil, stirring frequently until sugar has dissolved. Then boil rapidly for about 20 minutes until jellying point is reached.

Test for jellying point with a jelly thermometer which should read 200 to 222 F, or with a spoon which, when dipped into the mixture, has 2 drops form along the edge, come together and fall as 1 drop. Ladle into hot, sterilized jars and seal immediately.

To seal:

Fill to within ½-inch headroom, 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.

Please amend your site, it should read Parrafin WAX not parrafin.


Thanks for your comment. It is paraffin on the website, and it is the right spelling.
