Place the pudding into a saucepan of boiling water and place a lid on, steam for two hours.

Take two red grapefruit and with a serated knife remove skin. Now segment the grapefruit into a bowl. You now have a lovely breakfast. Place everything else into a large saucepan. Take two lemons, halve and squeeze juice, put all in with the red grapefruits and cover with cold water to ¾ inches above fruit. Now simmer for an hour until soft. Let the mixture cool, then blend with a hand blender until smooth. Now add 8 tbsp of brandy whiskey or any alcophol you like, stir well, pour mixture into an old ice cream tub or similar and leave in fridge for 1 week.

After a week add 1 pound of sugar to every pint of liquid, place in a very large saucepan and boil until setting point is reached, you can use a thermometer or just check as you would when making jam. Bottle and store in fridge, or if you have a lot you can freeze in small plastic pots, use this to make your marmalade pudding ORANGE BRANCH 2013……enjoy
