I was given some Red Grapefruit and limes, so I decided to make some marmalade.
The computer is a wonderful source of information when it comes to looking up recipes, then sifting thru them to find an easy recipe. This one was soooo easy:
Cut 5 grapefruit in half. Cover with water and boil gently for 2 hours.
Drain off water and mulch cooked grapefruit (skins and all) in a food processor.
Put mulched grapefruit, juice of 4 lemons (or limes) and 8 cups of sugar in boiler.
Bring to boil stirring the whole time and then simmer for nearly 20 mins.
Pour into sterilised bottles, put on lids straight away.
A real marmalade taste, sweet but tangy.
I was also given this "Buddha's Hand" to place in a bowl in a room. It sends out a citrus smell. The person who gave it to me said it is all skin and she only uses it to freshen a room, but she said that someone else cut it up and made a marmalade.
I have made about 25 bottles of the grapefruit marmalade so far and still have more to make...hope I can sell heaps to customers at work!
Until next post...
