Grapefruit Marmalade, Part 1
- Pei Sep 7, 2006 09:24 PM
Thanks to everyone who gave marmalade advice last week. I finally got around to canning my grapefruit today, and so far so good! I'll do a final extensive report in two weeks if everything goes according to plan. For now, a pretty photo:
I have to say, it was easy but not easy at the same time. None of the techniques were difficult, but I ended up with a lot of dirty pots and sticky stuff over most of my counters. I know, it was my first time, but canning is no one-pot quick kitchen activity!
But grapefruit marmalade smells and looks MUCH prettier than orange marmalade. I can't wait! The bits I licked off the spoon were very tasty. I'm only worried about whether I got a proper seal on the cans (I'm pretty sure I did) and whether it'll set up to the right texture. Fingers crossed!
That looks delicious, Pei!
I love grapefruit marmalade with a mad passion. It's almost enough to make me run out and buy the stuff to make it myself, except that I'm currently swimming in the peach preserves I made two weeks ago.....
that IS beautiful! way to go!
another pretty and tasty one to try is blood oranges. Gawjuss!
and not completly set is good too- my Mom's was "sliding set"--would move around in the jar but not liquid. Lovely!
