Followed the advice of other users and halved the amount of zest. I still had to zest 4 whole oranges to get that much, but I was able to use the oranges for the 2/3 cups of juice required in the recipe. I'm not a big fan of white sugar, so I replaced it with raw sugar. I was worried that there might remain a raw sugar aftertaste, but I didn't notice anything amiss. I also used 1/2 teaspoon of ascorbic acid (vitamic C powder...available in many health food stores) mixed with 1 tablespoon of water instead of the lemon juice. It does the same thickening work that the lemon juice does but without the lemony flavor. Finally, I used Cointreau orange liqueur instead of the brandy for a final orange kick. It was wonderful. All in all, this was a great recipe that rewards you for the extra time put into it.
