  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Slice the grapefruit very very thinly with a sharp knife, into flat slices. then cut these into strips, and cut the strips into smaller bits. Keep all the juice that flows out, if it's a juicy grapefruit.
  2. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil, and then add the grapefruit slices and juice.
  3. Keep at a low boil, adding the sugar. Continue boiling for quite some time (20-30 minutes), until it begins getting thicker.
  4. The tricky part is knowing when to stop boiling. If you wait too long, it will become too thick when it cools. The important thing to know is it thickens a bit when cooling, so you have to stop it before it reaches the desired consistency. I put a porcelain dish in the fridge, then pour a little onto the dish - if it congeals a little, then it's ready.
  5. Before you bottle it, eat it with bread while it's still warm - it's delicious!
  6. Pour in any clean bottle, and refrigerate.
