3 ingredients, (roughly) 3 hours, some stirring, a dash of love, and one heck of delicious grapefruit marmalade!
- 2 ruby red grapefruits
- 2 pounds granulated sugar
- juice from 1 lemons (about 3 tablespoons)
- In a large pot, place the two grapefruits in just enough water to make them float freely. Bring to boil over medium heat, continue cooking for about 2 hours (add more water if needed). Drain the grapefruit, discard the water and let the grapefruits to cool down.
- Slice the grapefruits as thinly as possible, chop a bit (or you can use the food processor to do the job). Return the chopped grapefruits into the pot, add sugar and lemon juice. Dissolve the sugar over low heat, stirring frequently. Bring to boil and let bubble until you reach the jell point (about 15-30 minutes). Transfer to clean and sterilized jars and soak in hot water for 10 minutes.
