Expert Tips

There is no need to peel the orange before chopping it because the peel will crystallize due to the slow cooking and amount of sugar. The peel also gives the conserve a wonderful orange flavor.

A conserve is a type of preserves that contains two or more fruits and some type of nut. It usually is used as a spread for toast, biscuits, scones and bread. The orange flavor of this conserve, however, makes it a tasty accompaniment to pork, ham, chicken, turkey and duck-both wild and domestic.
