Tart marmalade is delicious on scones or breakfast breads. This recipe produces classic British-style bitter marmalade. If you prefer less bitterness, use only half the grapefruit rind called for in the recipe. Keep in mind that the mixture will thicken as it cools.

- 2 medium red grapefruits (about 2 pounds)
