I always love finding a recipe that is so simple to do but looks (and tastes!) so very gourmet on the table. This definitely falls into that category. It cooked up into a thick, rich relish with a background tone of marmalade; a nice complement to all the other sweet goodies on the table. I used equal part of orange and rind; I think next time I will use 2 oranges and 1 rind, to personal preference. This was even better after being refrigerated for abour 24 hrs; a bonus to be able to make it ahead of time. Thanks so much for posting a new holiday classic! :o)
