Preserved Grapefruit

ohm86 | Jan 23, 2009 07:44 AM

I received a bajillion beautiful organic grapefruit a week ago, and I just cannot get through these things! I've juiced some, made grapefruit salads, grapefruit granitas, even grapefruit-infused vodka (!) and I still have no fewer than 2 dozen sitting on my counter.
I love preserved lemons (though I have never made them myself, I know it's relatively easy to do at home) - has anyone had any experience making preserved grapefruits? My concern is that the pith is so much thicker than with lemons and I wonder if it would impart too much bitterness. I've found recipes online for grapefruit marmalade, but I'm much more interested in the salt-cured variety of preserves.

Thanks in advance!
