    There is a typo in this recipe, I think - 1 Tbsp sugar should be 1 cup. I boiled this for like an hour and a half and it never turned into jelly until I added more sugar. Also, it's a lot of trouble to juice these oranges and lemons for a marginal taste gain. If I were making this again, I would just use the zest and water. I would also just use the ground spices in the fruit itself. After all that time crushing the spices I couldn't even taste them in the end. It turned out fine, but was too much trouble - there are many delicious blueberry jam recipes that don't require this much labor! (and actually turn into jam with the printed instructions!)
