Pink Grapefruit Marmalade

I could not have imagined that just pink grapefruit, lemons and sugar could give such a gentle and succulent marmalade.  There is no bitterness well not to my taste buds, and the colour is beautiful.  Yes there is the classic Seville Marmalade, but this one is very special.  This one is competition standard to be sure!

Rhubarb and Ginger Jam

No pictures here, but the thought of some tangy quintessentially English preserve on fresh bread or on my home made Staffordshire oat cakes, is small compensation for the dismal weather we have been having.  I only made four jars as I was astounded at the price of rhubarb.  However, I bought some more today, and will make a second batch tomorrow, so there will be jars for whoever would like them.
