Marmalade captures the bittersweet tangy brilliance that is citrus & preserve it for later in the year – like summer. This is the lazy version, where you spend a little time on each step & wait days before finishing the batch.
This treat is not for the faint of heart. It is powerful stuff; sweet yet bitter, tough yet tender. Not for mindless snacking - it asks, perhaps even demands, to be savored. We chose grapefruit but you can choose whatever citrus your heart desires.
I love using honey in my sweet spreads. Honey adds a mellowness that can’t be found when using sugar alone. Be sure to use a mild flavored honey here as we still want the lemon flavor to shine through.
