Grapefruitalade – Is that a word?
Another culinary triumph by yours truly. With no help from anyone else, I made the world’s best grapefruitalade.
Whoa, whoa. As if. I guess now would be a good time to tell you all that this is, I suppose officially, the first guest post on my blog. It wasn’t by choice. This is my older bro’s handy work, and I would have discouraged it (heavily) had I known it was happening. Read the above sentence again and I think you will see why. See, I made this grapefruit marmalade a few weeks back in celebration of citrus fruit, and well, my burgeoning quest to become the best jamstress in all the land. It was enjoyed by all. He was jealous. I later found this very post on my brand new blog. No help from anyone? Generic photo? Grapefruitalade?? Ruined. Obviously that’s not a word.
Do a google search for “grapefruitalade.” I dare you. I guarantee mine is the only site that comes up. Sighs.
Anyway, you can make some yourself. You probably should. Google doesn’t have it. And it ain’t makin’ itself! 😀
Grapefruit Marmalade AKA “Grapefruitalade”
* 3 lbs grapefruit, about 6
* Zest from at least 4
* 3 cups sugar
* 1/2 small box of pectin
* About 4 medium sized mason jars with lids
Zest as many grapefruit as you’d like. Supreme grapefruit and avoid all of the nasty pith and membranes. Add everything to a big pot and cook on high until mixture comes to a rolling boil, about 10 min. Reduce to a simmer, add sugar and cook until it reaches at least 165C. This should take about 30-40 min. Add pectin, and simmer an additional 5 min. Gather your sanitized glassware and lids, pour in the hot mixture, and submerge in a large pot until the tops “pop.” Remove from water, let cool, and then refrigerate until set. Yum!
