    Must have recovered from jet lag! Looks delicious.

      Well, that is ALL I did today. 🙂 Much easier than garden work! 60 mins from produce-washing to clean kitchen. Had some help, too.

    I hope you did or will soon candy the peel, too! Or make marmalade.

      I bailed on that. Was going to take more time and effort than I felt like expending last night. But lavender lemon peel and rosemary orange peel did sound good, didn’t it?

    How, please? Water bath for how long? Did you heat the juice and put it in hot jars? I want to this when I find inexpensive citrus. Right now, I freeze the juice in muffin tins and pop them out into a ziplock.

      Heat juice to 190 for 5 mins, then can for 15 mins in boiling water bath. These were half- and quarter-pint jars.
