Blueberry Orange Preserves
1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
4 whole allspice seeds
1 pint blueberries
1 large orange
2 medium lemons
2 tablespoons orange-flavored brandy
1 tablespoon sugar

Carefully peel the zest from the oranges and cut into very fine matchsticks. Cook the matchsticks in water until they are tender. Coarsely crush the coriander and allspice seeds. Juice the orange and the lemons. Place the pits of the orange and the crushed spices into a tea ball.

Combine the blueberries with the citrus juices and brandy. Cook for 10 minutes with the tea ball immersed in the fruit. Add the matchsticks and sugar. Cook until the preserves pass the jelly test. Pour into warm clean jars and seal. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
