Mamalade simplified

To keep things really simple:

Day 1: Take grapefruits and lemons (ratio of 1:1), reserve pips. slice thinly, and combine fruit with water (ratio 1:3, by volume). Tie pips up in a little bit of gauze and add to fruit. Soak overnight.

Day 2: Boil mixture for 15 minutes and leave covered overnight.

Day 3: Boil mixture for 15 minutes and leave covered overnight.

Day 4: Combine mixture with sugar (ratio 1:1, by volume). Bring to boil and simmer gently, uncovered, until it gels. You will need to get the mixture to 220F.

Flavor will improve with keeping. Several weeks advised.

If you have difficulty getting the mixture to jel, cook down to reduce the water and concentrate the pectin and sugar.
