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.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
