Oranges and Lemons Preserved.

Take the fairest you can get, lay them in water three days and three nights, to take away their bitterness; then boil them in fair water till they be tender; make as much Syrrup as will make them swim about the pan; let them not boil long, for then the skins will be tough; then let them lye all night in the Syrrup, that they may soak themselves therein; in the morning boil the Syrrup to a convenient thickness, then with it and the Oranges and lemons, fill your Gally-pots, and keep them all the year; in this manner you may preserve Citrons.
