Grapefruit Marmalade

2/3 cup thinly sliced grapefruit peel
1 1/3 cup chopped grapefruit pulp
1 qt. water
4 cups sugar (approx.)

Cover grapefruit peel with water; boil 10 minutes and drain. Repeat 2 or 3 times.

To drained peel, add chopped pulp and 1 qt. water. Cover and let stand 12-18 hours in a cool place. Cook rapidly until peel is tender, about 40 minutes.

Measure fruit and liquid. Add 1 cup sugar for each cup of fruit mixture. Bring slowly to boiling, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly almost to jellying point, about 30-35 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

Pour, boiling hot, into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath.

Yield about 3 half-pints.
