Dairy‑free, Good for parties/potlucks, Travels well
1/2 bottle liquid fruit pectin (Certo)

1 teaspoon grated lime rind
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Cointreau or Grand Marnier (orange flavored)

This recipe makes enough jam to fill four 8 ounce wine glasses or other containers. Before filling the containers, warm them by rinsing them with very hot water then dry and fill to within 1/2 inch of the top. Seal with a thin layer of melted paraffin. Remove the remaining paraffin from heat and let cool a little. Then beat with an electric mixer or a whisk until foamy. Spoon foam over the thin layer of paraffin and sprinkle with colored sugar. Cool. This will keep on the pantry shelf (or a cool dark place) at least two months or indefinitely in the refrigerator.
