Peach Marmalade

  • 1 small orange
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 lbs. peaches
  • 1 3/4 package of powdered fruit pectin

In an 8 quart kettle, add orange and lemon mixture to chopped peaches. Stir in pectin and bring to a full boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard uncovered for 1 minute. Remove from heat and skim off foam. Pour at once into jars and seal.
