Do you have an excess of grapefruit and don't know what to do with it all? There's only so much marmalade one can eat, right? This bottled grapefruit juice recipe will use up a lot of this excess fruit and will give you a lovely mixer to enjoy over summer. Feel free to add in other citrus too - in developing this recipe, I also added in the juice from a few oranges, limes and lemons that I had on hand.
I've developed this recipe with the intention to dilute it by about 50% with fizzy water (50/50 mix grapefruit juice and carbonated water). You can adjust the sweetness to suit your tastebuds or intended use.
Makes: 5x 530 mL Weck Juice Jars (with a little left over to keep in your fridge)
3 L freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1 1/2 cups sugar (I use raw golden sugar)
I've recommended the 530 mL juice jars by Weck for this but you could preserve this in Ball jars too (the regular mouth pint or regular mouth quart would be great for this - both have shoulders on the jars making it easier to pour liquid from). I use the 20 L pot from the Ball Deluxe Home Preserving Starter Kit for my preserves - note that the 1 L Weck juice jar is too tall for heat processing in this pot.
