So quick and easy with a wonderful fresh taste due to the fast cooking time. I sliced the peel very thinly rather than grating it. Will certainly do it again. Thanks, Helen, Shenzhen, China.


  1. Finely grate peel of one orange and one lime.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Peel all fruit.
  4. Place pulp in a food processor and coarsely puree.
  5. Place puree in a 12-cup microwave-safe bowl; stir in peel and sugar.
  6. Microwave, uncovered, on High for 8-10 minutes , until mixture comes to a full roiling boil and boils for 1 minute.
  7. Stir well once during cooking.
  8. Let cool slightly.
  9. Pour into sterilized jars; cover and refrigerate.
  10. Keeps well for at least two weeks.
