2 large Valencia or navel oranges
2 medium-size red grapefruit
1 lemon
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt


Total: 2 Hours, 15 Minutes

1. Grate zest from oranges to equal 1 Tbsp. Repeat with grapefruit. Grate zest from lemon to equal 1 tsp.

2. Peel and section oranges, grapefruit, and lemon, holding fruit over a bowl to collect juices.

3. Stir together zest, fruit segments, sugar, ginger, kosher salt, 1/3 cup fruit juices, and 1 3/4 cups water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 50 minutes or until a candy thermometer registers 225° and mixture is slightly thickened. Cool completely (about 1 hour; mixture will thicken as it cools). Pour into 2 (8-oz.) jars or airtight containers, and chill 24 hours. Store marmalade in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
