"Pectin is a naturally occurring substance in fruit that makes sweet preserves gel. You can buy commercial pectin, or you can make your own from citrus peels. High-pectin citrus peel is what makes marmalade gel without added pectin. Keep in mind that it is the white pith, or inner part of the citrus peel that is rich in pectin. Under-ripe fruits have more of this pith than fully ripe fruits. You can use any citrus for this recipe, but grapefruit works especially well because of its larger pith. My disclaimer: I found this recipe when I was searching for the health benefits of the pith.I have not tried this recipe, in fact, I have never made preserves, jellies or jams. Please Note: Prep & cooking time = 20 minutes. Please note the maceration time of 3 hours. Total Time: 3 hours, 20 minutes Source: http://foodpreservation.about.com"
