Grapefruit Marmalade


I truly believe that this Grapefruit Marmalade will quickly become the most popular choice to spread on your toast, croissants or breakfast bagels in the morning. Made from just 4 ruby red grapefruits and 3 cups of white sugar, the sweetness and tartness come together to make the best marmalade yet. This year it’s time to cut out as many store bought products as possible!

To make Grapefruit Marmalade, you will need the following ingredients:

Ingridiens for Grapefruit Marmalade

Steps to make Grapefruit Marmalade


Prepare jam jars


Wash new, 2 5-ounce jars and unused lids in warm soapy water then immerse in simmering hot water until ready to fill.


Prepare zest ribbons


Carefully run a zester around 2 of the grapefruits to produce ribbons of grapefruit zest. Set aside. Use a sharp knife to cut away thin strips of peel from the two remaining grapefruits.


Prepare grapefruit wheels


Continue peeling off the remaining outer layer and discard. Cut grapefruits into even wheel shapes and discard seeds.


Cook grapefruit


In a non-reactive saucepan over medium-high heat, add grapefruit wheels, zest strips and 3 cups of white sugar. Stir well to coat the fruit. Cook while continuously stirring until bubbling.


Release juices


Gently mash the fruit until juices are released and mixture liquifies.


Add zest ribbons


Add zest ribbons and cook for another 30 minutes.


Cook on low


Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring continuously over a gentle boil for about 10 minutes until marmalade begins to stick to the back of a spoon. Scoop out any excess white foam that may form during the cooking process.


Test marmalade


Place a drop of marmalade onto a plate and transfer to the freezer for 3 minutes then test consistency to meet your preference.


Fill jars


Once set, pour grapefruit marmalade into sterilized jars, pack them tightly and leave about ¼-inch space from the top. Remove any air bubbles, wipe the rims so that they are completely clean then seal and screw tightly.




Let the jars cool at room temperature, then set aside for at least 24 hours before using. Store jars in a dark, cool area.

So so good! Used brown sugar instead of white.

Lorena Klauser

I'm too lazy to make my own jam again haha this took a while and boy was it hard! I think I'll stick to buying the premade ones but it was still good, thanks anyway.

Calista Kurtic

Better than honey and I can put my own amount of sugar and anything i want in it!

Yuliana Haycraft

Great with some pound bread or even banana bread, had it with some tea and toast for breakfast.

Wasn't sure I'd be able to make this taste good or even look like jam but nailed it on the first try due to the amazingly simple steps thx cookme.

Love this grapefruit marmalade, the premade ones are always either too sweet or not sweet at all, glad I made my own.

Eisley Bismark
