6 Seville oranges (or other thin-skinned orange) juice of 2 lemons
8 c. water
8 oz. crystallized ginger, chopped

then simmer for 1 1/2 hr.
Remove the cheesecloth bag; add both gingers and sugar. Stir well; bring back to a boil and boil briskly for 10 min.
Remove from heat and let cool for 5 min.
Stir well again, then pour into hot, sterilized jars; seal and process in boiling water bath for 5 min.
