This was good but I have to be honest; It isn't something I will make again. The flavor is wonderful, but it tastes like a plain Orange marmalade. the Orange overpowers the other fruits to the point where it is hard to justify having bought them and spent the time peeling and chopping. The cook time and quantity are spot on though which is nice for a canning recipe. I'm sorry I couldn't give it more stars. It tastes great but I think I'll just make Orange marmalade next time. (Gosh, I hate giving a less than perfect review :-( )
