Orange & Grapefruit Preserves


If you love marmalade, you’ll want to have a jar of these preserves in your pantry. They have the sweet bitterness that makes citrus marmalades so beloved.  I steeped a sachet of orange and grapefruit zest in the juices and added juicy chunks of the fruit to the mix before boiling it with the pectin and sugar.  The permit I have for making jam out of my home excludes marmalades (a huge bummer), but these preserves are pretty darn close in  flavor  if not in texture (I do miss those chunks of candied peel).

Ingredients: Oranges (slices and juice ), Grapefruit (slices and juice), Dried Orange & Grapefruit Peel, Sugar, Lemon Juice, Pectin (Dextrose, Fruit Pectin, Citric Acid)

How to use:

-Mini-Trifles-use this Lemon Berry Trifle as a guide and replace some of the berries with these preserves

-Serve with slices of your favorite pound cake and whipped cream for an easy dessert

-Add some to a warm bowl of polenta, grits, oatmeal or other cooked grains

-Joy the Baker just posted a King Cake-inspired Bostock recipe to her Instagram.  She uses orange marmalade, but this jelly would work. It looks so delicious.
