Help Salvage my Goreous Grapefruit!!!
So I made a bonehead mistake in a recipe that I had. I have "Canning for a New Generation" and was trying to make "grapefruit segments in Mint Syrup" Well, I messed up and when I read "Holding back the segments, pour the juice that has collected in the bowl into a 2 cup measure. Add enough water to make 2 cups liquid. Put in medium saucepan, add sugar, and 1/4 cup mint. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat, stirring to dissolve sugar" I read it as boiling grapefruit segments in the water until the sugar dissolved and now my grapefruit segments are completely disintegrated. Now I have grapefruit pulp in minty syrup. Is there anything I can do to salvage all this yummy grapefruit? Maybe add more sugar and boil it down to more of a thicker syrup consistency?
The original recipe called for 5 pounds grapefruit, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup packed fresh mint springs plus one small sprig per pint.
Please help me!
