Candied Grapefruit Peel

Candied Grapefruit Peel, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

This is what happens when Daughter comes to visit at Christmas.

Mass grapefruit harvesting from my trees.
Then comes the washing, cutting, peeling and scraping. Cooking the
peel three times in boiling water then
one more time simmering in sugar syrup. A final dusting of sugar and
you have magic... Candied Grapefruit Peel.

The next photo shows the final wonderful finished product. Lovely !

Spending time with my daughter priceless.


  1. I bet the whole house smells as good as it looks, which is gorgeous. Love the photo it reminds me of an Old Master still life.

  2. What do you do with all those peeled grapefruits? Juice? Great perspective to that picture and lovely color coming in from outside.

  3. Eryl...
    The did indeed smells wonderful !
    And I didn't see that but it does look like and Old Master still life. Interesting !

    We made lovely juice and I saved the syrup to sweeten the juice and add to Prosecco.

  4. Sounds like Heaven - looks like it, too!
