Method

 
Put the grapefruit peel and water in a large pot and bring to the boil. Simmer over moderate heat for about one hour until the peel is soft enough to pierce a hole through with a toothpick.

Add the sugar and vanilla pod with seeds, and boil until the preserve is thick and syrupy. To test the marmalade put a saucer in the fridge until cold and drop a teaspoonful of marmalade onto the saucer. Poke the marmalade lightly with a finger. If the surface puckers, it is ready. Spoon into hot sterilised jars and seal. Serve with ripe camembert.
