“This recipe uses peaches, oranges, and maraschino cherries. Really old recipe, close to a marmalade. They used a food chopper with this but I think a food processor would be faster. No jar amounts were given so I am guessing.”
10 1/2 pints

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Run peaches through a chopper. I think that you would blanch, peel and pit the peaches before running them through chopper.
  2. Run all oranges through chopper, using rind of one orange. (just the zest; the whole rind will make it bitter; other recipes are using zest from all the oranges; you judge).
  3. Add cherry juice to the peaches, oranges, and sugar.
  4. Cook, stirring constantly, I am guessing this will burn easily.
  5. Cook until thick.
  6. When nearly done, add chopped cherries.
  7. Bring to a boil.
  8. Put in small jar and cover with paraffin wax (I said this was old recipe).
  9. Another recipe had you water bathing for 10 minutes to seal; check Ball book.
