Written by in , Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Style Grapefruit Marmalade

In Greece, it is a regular practice to take fresh fruit and turn it into marmalade, or marmalada. Although orange marmalade is a little more popular, grapefruit is also popular. This is served all over Greece.

Greek Grapefruit Marmalade Recipe:

  • 4 grapefruits, peeled, cut into sections, and deseeded
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions fo How to Make Grapefruit Marmalade:

Remove the white part (the pith) from the grapefruit peels using a sharp knife. Discard the pith and slice the peel into small pieces. Add the sliced peel, grapefruit, and water to a sauce pan and bring to a boil with the mixture uncovered. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours and then add the sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Stir until the ingredients are well combined and continue simmering until sugar dissolves and marmalade thickens. Remove saucepan from the heat when marmalade is as thick as you want and pour the contents into a glass jar. Serve immediately or after it cools. Store in refrigerator for about a week.
