Last month, I went halfsies with a friend on a Zaycon order of lean 93/7 ground beef. (Zaycon is a company which sells meat direct to consumers. They offer super high quality products at very good prices. If you want more info, click here.) She received the order on Saturday, and I picked it up this morning. Now I have these two HUGE 10 pound tubes of hamburger, and I need to decide what to do with it.
I could be boring and just cut it up and freeze it (and I am seriously tempted to be boring), or I could do something fun like use my handy dandy pressure canner (I have this one) and can hamburger. Or I can brown it all before I freeze it. Hmm… What should I do? My fridge is overflowing with ground beef, and I must do something with it very soon! Any suggestions?
If all I had to do was decide what to do with my ground beef, it would not be a problem. But, on a whim, I bought these while coming back from the beach last week.
I passed right by some farmer’s markets, and they were only $7 total, so I couldn’t pass them up. I’m planning to make some marmalade, but I don’t know if I really need as many jars of marmalade as these will yield. I turned to my friend, Google, and found an interesting recipe for candied orange peel. I may try my hand at that, but I have no idea what to do with the rest of the oranges. The boxes looked so much smaller when they were in the market.
So, I’m begging you! Help! What should I make with my plethora of oranges and hamburger? Best suggestion (for either oranges or hamburger) with a recipe (it can be your own or something found on the Internet) wins one of my homemade jars of marmalade or one of my other jam, preserves, or jellies. If I select your idea/recipe, I’ll let you choose one of the following:
Vanilla Pear Preserves (click here to see my post about serving it over goat cheese with crackers)
Strawberry Preserves (click here to see how I made it)
Apricot Preserves (click here to see how I made it)
Ginger Pear Jam
Carrot Cake Jam (weird sounding, but, oh, so good!)
What’s the catch? You only have today and tomorrow to enter my contest and make a comment on this post (comments made after midnight Pacific daylight time on Wednesday, April 16th are appreciated, but are not eligible for the contest), and you must have a shipping address within the continental USA.

So, tell me… What should I make?
