So quick and easy with a wonderful fresh taste due to the fast cooking time. I sliced the peel very thinly rather than grating it. Will certainly do it again. Thanks, Helen, Shenzhen, China.

Have not tried the recipe but love the look of it, as I am not permitted grapefruit, breakfast without marmalade is a no no. Will certainly make this in the next day or two. Rosemary in N.Z.Thank you.
