Oranges in Triple Sec (BBB)


This is the latest recipe I’ve tried from the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. I love this book! It has photos, which means I will probably make all the recipes with photos first because they all look so delicious. The other day when I posted about Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate, someone asked for the recipe. I’ve got that recipe and the Oranges in Triple Sec on Farm Bell Recipes here now:

Oranges in Triple Sec
Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate

I just got this book recently, and I’m really loving it. You want to try recipes from this book, too?
