Grapefruit Marmalade ~ 柚子果酱



This is a very simple Grapefruit marmalade recipe.  It has a 'zingy' flavour, not too sweet and it's delicious with toasts, buns and in this case, I chose to spread it on my crackers.  This marmalade is full of fruit, flavourful but not overpowering.








Recipe for Grapefruit Marmalade  ~   柚子

Ingredients

  • 4 Grapefruits about 2.1/2 lbs
  • 2 cups water
  • 300 gm caster sugar
Method
  1. Put a few plates in the freezer to chill.
  2. Wash the grapefruits and put them in a large bowl.  Pour boiling water on them for a few seconds to get rid of the wax on the peel.  Then wipe them clean.
  3. Use a peeler to peel off the zest from the grapefruits, set aside.
  4. Cut the grapefruit into 8 wedges and remove the white pith from the grapefruit.   (Discard the white pith for it's bitter).  Remove the seeds and membranes from the grapefruit and place them into a cotton cloth bag. 
  5. Add water, zest and sugar into a heavy bottom pot and boil the mixture on medium heat.  Add in the bag of membranes and seeds to get the pectin.  Stir the mixture until the sugar has dissolved making sure that the bottom doesn't get burnt.  Let the mixture simmer under low heat for about 1 hour 15 mins.,  till it has reached the jelling point.
  6. Remove the bag and press out juice from it.  Discard.
  7. To test the marmalade, turn off the heat and put a small amount on a plate that has been chilled in the freezer and return it to the freezer.   Check it in a few minutes.  It should be slightly jelled and will wrinkle a bit when you slide your finger through it.   If it's still runny, continue to cook till it's jelled. 
  8. Ladle the marmalade into sterilised jars.   When they're cool, store them in the refrigerator.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
