Candied Grapefruit Peels

I keep my leftover peels in the freezer until I have enough to candy.



Boil peels in cold water whole and drain them, twice. Cut them into strips. Boil the strips six more times, starting with cold water each time.

Dissolve sugar in ½ c. water on heat. Cook peels slowly in the water until only 2 T. syrup remains.

Roll in sugar and cool on a greased cookie sheet.


You can do this with (four) oranges, but I prefer grapefruit.
