  Makes 4 1-pint jars
Use this over buttermilk pancakes and sprinkle fresh blueberries on top for a special Sunday brunch.
zest of 6 oranges such as Valencia, cut in strips
1 quart water
4 cups sugar
2 cups fresh orange juice from oranges above, strained
2 tablespoons citric acid
In a saucepan, boil the zest, water, and sugar, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved, then boil without stirring for 3 minutes. Remove from the hear, cool, cover, and stand for 12 hours.

Ladle the zest mixture into a strainer lined with several layers of cheesecloth, and press the liquid into a bowl. Mix in the orange juice and citric acid. Pour the syrup back into the saucepan and reheat.

Ladle the hot syrup into hot, clean jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Clean the jar rims and seal. Loosen the screw bands by half a turn. Place the jars in a gently boiling (210 degree) hot-water canner and process for 30 minutes. At high altitudes, increase time as specified by manufacturer. Remove the jars from the canner and re-tighten the lids.

CANNING TIPS: Gently remove the screw bands after 24 hours. It is important to do this after 24 hours as they will become difficult to remove, may rust, and may not work properly again. Don't force them as you may break the vacuum seal.

Completed vegetables and fruits must always be stored in a dry, dark, cool area. Lids corrode in damp atmospheres; loss of food color occurs from too strong light; and jars break if frozen. Always label jars with the contents and the date.
