Ingredients

  • 1 red or pink grapefruit (do not peel), preferably organic, washed well
  • 1 navel orange (do not peel), preferably organic, washed well
  • 1/4 cup water, plus more for pan
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped, pod reserved
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Cut peels from grapefruit and orange. Cut pith from peels, and slice into very thin strips. Slice fruit along membranes to release segments into a bowl. Squeeze juice from membranes into bowl; discard membranes. Pour cup juice through a fine sieve into a small bowl.

  2. Step 2

    Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Cook citrus peels for 1 minute; drain. Bring cup water, the sugar, and vanilla seeds and pod to a boil in a clean medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to low. Add reserved juice and peels and the salt; cook for 2 minutes. Let cool completely.

  3. Step 3

    Discard vanilla pod. Toss syrup with reserved fruit.
