7 to 8 SweeterSorts tangerines
2 cups sugar
1 cup honey
1/8 tsp. baking soda
4 tbsp. powdered fruit pectin
(low or no sugar added)
2 cups water


1.Wash the tangerines and remove the rind in quarters. Thinly slice the rind lengthwise, then chop into smaller pieces.

2.Add the rind to a large pot with water and baking soda. Bring it to a boil over medium heat. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer until the rinds have softened. This will take about 15 minutes.

3. In the meantime, coarsely chop the tangerines and remove all seeds. Add the tangerines to a food processor and pulse until the pieces are broken but still chunky.

4.Add the tangerines to the pot with the rind. Stir in the butter and pectin and bring it to a boil. Add the sugar and honey and bring it to a full rolling boil for one minute, while stirring constantly.

5.Remove from heat and skim any foam from the surface with a metal spoon. Immediately ladle into hot, sterilized canning jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Screw on two-piece lids and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
