In small saucepan, combine orange, lemon and 1 cup water; cover and cook over low heat until peel is tender and translucent, 20 to 30 minutes.

In large Dutch oven, stir together orange mixture, rhubarb, sugar and raisins; bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, until firmly set, about 15 minutes.

Remove from heat. Stir and skim off foam for 5 minutes.

Fill hot 1-cup (250 mL) canning jars, leaving 1/4-inch (5 mm) headspace. Cover with prepared discs. Screw on bands until resistance is met; increase to fingertip tight. Boil in boiling water canner for 10 minutes.

Turn off heat. Uncover and let jars stand in canner for 5 minutes. Lift up rack. With canning tongs, transfer jars to cooling rack; let cool undisturbed for 24 hours.
