- 2 or 3 large pink grapefruits (about 900 g/2 lb)
- 2 cups maple syrup (preferably golden syrup for its delicate flavour)
- limes, zested and juiced
- Use a small sharp knife to peel the raw grapefruits, removing the outside peel and white membrane, leaving only the flesh.
- Thinly slice or chop the peels.
- In a medium saucepan, cover the peels with cold water and bring to a boil. Boil 2 minutes, then drain and rinse with cold water. Repeat this process once or twice more. The objective is to reduce bitterness. Reserve.
- Cut the flesh of the grapefruits into cubes.
- Return peels to the pan along with the flesh, the maple syrup, and the lime juice. Simmer over medium heat for 40 minutes.
- Add the lime zest and simmer another 20 minutes.
- Put into containers.
QUANTITY: 1 litre (4 cups)
