It’s time to get your fill of ruby reds, marsh, pomelo, and oroblanco because it is National Grapefruit Month!
These citrus fruits range from white to red and sweet to tart. The brightness of grapefruits lends them to be very flavorful marmalades, curds, and jellies! We pulled together a few preserving recipes that feature grapefruit as the star ingredient.
- Grow Forage Cook Ferment has a pretty straight forward Grapefruit Curd recipe here.
- If you want to take your curd to the next level, try this Grapefruit Hibiscus Curd from Autumn Giles of Beyond Canning. It’s a no-fuss twist on an original lemon curd recipe. Autumn paired pink grapefruit with hibiscus to help retain the bright and pretty color of the grapefruit.
Grapefruit Syrup & Shrubs
- If you are looking for something different than a spreadable preserve, try this Grapefruit Syrup with Mrs. Wages® Fresh Fruit Preserver.
- Make a grapefruit shrub! We generally use a 1:1:1 ratio of fruit, sugar, and vinegar. Read more about making shrubs here and here.
