I've discovered it helps to chill the fruit overnight. To make recipe, remove one fruit at a time from 'frig & quickly grate the rind, using the large side of a cheese grater. Don't press too hard because you don't want to add a lot of the bitter pith. This is a wonderful recipe and I hope you'll try it.

This is a fabulous and unusual marmalade. It's beautiful in the jar as well. A little complicated for beginners, but delicious.
