The Marmalade is done

Every year I make a batch of marmalade for my son and his youngest daughter who love the marmalade and the fact that is made from organically grown grapefruit and is all fruit with no fillers. It took me many years before I discovered the reason that some times the marmalade didn't set was a combination of acetic acid and heat and if either are not sufficient the jam does not gell. It was a tip I found on Pinterest and these days I just add a dessert spoon of acetic acid to the fruit and it always sets perfectly
