Step 1

Peel grapefruit using a sharp knife. Slice the bitter white pith from the peel, leaving just a thin layer on the peel. Discard the pith. Cut the peel into thin (1/8 inches thick) slices and place in a medium bowl. (I found this easiest do do by cutting the peel in about 8 sections - I could then flatten it out and remove most of the white pith with my knife).

Step 2

Place peel in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes, timing from when it starts to bubble.Drain in a strainer or colander and rinse under running cold water.Repeat this step 5 times

Cut the grapefruit into sections, removing the membrane and seeds. Add the sections and any juice to a sauce pan. Stir in sugar orange water and pectin. stir until sugar is dissolved.Add peels.

Bring to a boil over high heat and cook for 15 minutes or until until the marmalade coat the back of a metal spoon).
