● 400 g pomelo
● 1 apple
● 500 g sugar
● 200 g water
● 1 cinnamon stick
● juice of 1/2 lemon

Wash and peel the apple, remove the seeds and put it in water to prevent it from turning brown. Wash the pomelo very well, grate the skin with the grater, cut it in small pieces and put them in a pot. Cover with water and put on high heat. Once the water has come to a boil, boil the fruit for 10 minutes and then drain in a colander. Put the fruit slices back in the pot with fresh water and boil again, repeating the same process 3-4 more times until the bitterness of the fruit is gone. Once that process is done, using a slotted spoon remove the pomelo and put it in a colander for 10 minutes to drain. Next, puree the fruit in the blender. Put the puree in the pot and add the sugar, water and cinnamon stick and also grate the apple with the grater. Boil all together until the jam has thickened, about 35-40 minutes.
Just before turning off the heat add the lemon juice, stir, remove the cinnamon stick and remove from the heat. To see if the jam has the desired consistency, put some on a saucer and allow to cool. Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the jam is ready. Finally, allow it to rest for 10 minutes and then store in glass sterilized jars.
