  2. Finely shred the orange and lemon peel, put into another bowl; add the seed bag.
  3. Add enough water to the orange-lemon juice to fill quart to the neck of the jar; pour this over the peel.
  4. Leave orange-lemon peels & liquid sit overnight.
  5. Next day, pour peels & liquid into a sauce-pan, simmer for one hour (peel will be very tender).
