Christmas Citrus Marmalade
2 1/2 c Water
1/8 ts Baking soda
1 lg Grapefruit
7 1/2 pint canning jars
1 1 3/4 oz box powdered fruit
6 c Sugar
Remove peel from white part of lemons and orange in long strips with sharp paring knife, making sure there is no white on the peel. Stack strips, cut into thin slivers. Combine lemon and orange peels, water and baking soda in 2 qt saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

With fingers, remove pulp from membrane of each section over large saucepan to save juice. Dice fruit sections into same saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 10 min.

Screw bands tightly, but do not force. To process, place jars in boiling water; boil 10 min. Remove jars and cool on wire racks. Store unopened jars in a cool, dry place up to 12 months.
