We Be Jammin'... Grapefruit Cranberry Marmalade



Grapefruit Cranberry Marmalade 
Found on Pinterest

4 large grapefruit (about 4 pounds) 

1.5 cups water 

2.5 cups cranberries 

3 cups sugar 

Make abt 5 - 1/2 pints 

Carefully remove the rind of each grapefruit with a vegetable peeler or pairing knife, being careful to avoid the white pith. Slice the rind into thin strips. Place in a large saucepan. 

Peel and section the grapefruit: Slice off a piece of both the top and bottom of each grapefruit until the fruit is visible. Place on a cutting board. Starting at the top and following the curve of the fruit, cut away the remaining pith until only the flesh and membrane are left. Holding the fruit on it’s side, slide a pairing knife between one section of fruit and the membrane that is holding it there, loosening it’s hold. Cut alongside the opposite side of the fruit to loosen it from the membrane on the opposite side. Continue all the way along the grapefruit. Place the grapefruit sections into the saucepan and discard the empty membrane. 

Add 1.5 cups water to the saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium. Lower the heat and simmer for 15 min, stirring occasionally. Stir in cranberries and simmer for another 10 min. Add sugar and simmer for 30 min until slightly thickened. Continuing to stir occasionally.

Remove from heat and fill jars to 1/4 inch headspace. Process in a water bath canner for 10 mins
