Remove skins in quarters from 2 oranges and 1 lemon, close to the pulp. Break up pulp and remove seeds. Add 1/2 cup water and simmer in covered saucepan for 45 minutes. Boil rind from oranges and lemons with 4 cups water in covered saucepan for 20 minutes. Drain and discard water. With sharp-edged spoon scrape out and discard white part of skins, leaving only yellow rind. With sharp knife shred yellow rinds just as thin as possible in pieces about 1 inch long. Simmer shredded rinds again in 2 1/2 cups water in covered saucepan for 15 minutes. Drain and discard water. Mix cooked pulp with rinds. Measure 2 cups of mixed rind and pulp, adding water if necessary to make up this amount. Add 3 1/2 cups sugar and mix well. Stir constantly and bring to vigorous boil over hot fire. Boil hard for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from fire, add 1/4 cup commercial pectin. Stir well. Let stand 5 minutes only, stirring occasionally. Pour into glasses.
