I first made this in 1983. The recipe was given to my now ex-husband by a retiring co-worker. Believe me when I say 2 jars of this wonderful marmalade were not nearly enough to have on hand! We made almost 60 pints of this that first summer! It did not last until spring! Awesome on homemade biscuits!!
