DIRECTIONS

  • Using a paring knife or vegetable peeler, remove peel from the grapefruit in large strips than thinly slice it to make 1/4 cup. (try not to get too much pith with it, it can make it bitter).
  • In a small saucepan, combine peel and water. Bring to a boil over high
  • heat then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes or
  • until the peel is softened. Set aside.
  • Remove and discard any remaining peel and pith from grapefruit. Finely chop grapefruit, discarding seeds and any connective membranes.
  • Measure to make 3 cups, including juices.
  • In a large nonreactive saucepan, combine grapefruit, cooked peel with liquid and pomegranate juice.
  • Bring to a full boil over high heat, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in pectin until dissolved. Bring to a full boil over high heat, stirring constantly.
  • Add sugar in a steady stream, stirring constantly. Return to a full boil, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar. Boil hard for 1 minute.
