Like most things in our garden this year, the grapefruit tree has had a prolific crop. We don't eat grapefruit and it seems such a waste to leave them rot on the ground. We have a couple of friends that will take as many as we can give them. They like to juice them, but other than that it's hard to know what to do with the excess. That is until I came across this recipe by my favourite cook Annabel Langbein - GRAPEFRUIT MARMALADE.
The recipe used 2kg grapefruit so that helps the glut a little. The recipe was very easy especially with the use of a good food processor. Altogether the recipe made 24 bottles that should keep in the pantry for ages. The hardest part was cleaning up after bottling!
JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise
I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.
