Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cut the peeled limes in half and squeeze the juice. Set the juice aside.
  • Scrape the pulp and seeds from the lime halves. Place in a cheesecloth bag. Place the cheesecloth bag, zest, juice and water in a 6qt saucepan, cover and let soak overnight or about 8 hours (this removes bitterness).
  • Bring water mixture to a boil and cook about 2 hours until the peels are soft. Remove the cheesecloth bag. Add the sugar to the pan and stir to dissolve. Boil stirring often, until a cooking thermometer reaches 220 degrees.
  • Ladle into clean jars, leaving 1/4" headspace. Cap and seal. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath canner.
  • Makes about 10 pts.
