2 lb bitter oranges
1 oz root ginger
140 fl water

juice into a bowl and tie the pulp, seeds and root ginger together in
a piece of muslin or doubled/tripled cheesecloth. Shred peel to the
desired thickness and put peel and juice in a pan with the water and
the bag of pulp and seeds. Simmer gently for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or
until the peel is quite soft. Remove the bag of pulp (squeeze over
the pan as you do) and add the preserved ginger. Measure liquid, add
sugar and stir over low heat until dissolved. Boil rapidly to setting
