From Grandma's Cookbook: Orange and Pineapple Marmalade
The following recipe is from my grandmother's collection - the way it is presented is precisely how she had it written down in her recipe book.
No better combination can be secured than oranges and pineapple. To make marmalade, both fruits are cut into small pieces and then cooked in a thick sirup. 8 oranges, 2 c. hot water, 2 pineapples, 4 lb. sugar.
Wash the oranges, cut skins and all into small pieces, remove the seeds, and boil slowly in the water until the skins are soft. Prepare the pineapples by peeling them, removing the eyes, and then shredding or cutting into very small pieces. Add the pineapple to the orange, stir in sugar, and continue to boil until the juice is at the jelly stage. Pour into hot sterilized glasses, cool, seal, and label.
Over and above the obvious vitamin C benefit, the favored orange also contains a lot of folate and potassium. In addition, they provide us with antioxidants and fiber, which might reduce the risk of some diseases in including heart disease and cancers.
