DIY Lemon & Pink Grapefruit Marmalade

Despite a year of experience blindly making things I've found on Pinterest, nothing could have prepared me for this marmalade. Now that I know a thing or two, I can see that I the recipe I chose was too large and complicated for a first attempt, but it was a good initiation.

In addition to this being my first experience making marmalade, it was also my first experience in canning/preserving. Learning this skill has been on my to-do list for at least 4 years! I'm not sure why, but I've always been afraid, despite having read dozens of books about it that say how simple it is... And it is! But, along with making marmalade, it's also time consuming... Very, very time consuming.
