Stage 1 -
Get skins from 4 grapefruits , organic if possible, and clean to remove all traces of wax or other products from the skin, then rinse.
You should have 4 equal sized pieces of peel per grapefruit.
Stage 2 -
Cut each piece of peel into strips about 0.5 cm or ¼ inch wide.
If you keep some flesh of fruits with skins because you have
peel fruit completely
, don't remove it, actually it's better.
Stage 4 -
Put these strips in a pan, cover with cold water and leave overnight.
Next day, change water and leave about 4 hours longer. Note: We do that because we want to remove excessive bitter of skins.
Stage 5 -
After this time, drain peel strips and weigh them. Then put in a pan with their weight in sugar, and their weight in water (if possible filtered or mineral to avoid the chlorine taste).
Stage 6 -
Cook slowly over gentle heat, stiring from time to time...
... until there is hardly any liquid left.
Stage 8 -
Stage 9 -
Then roll in a little caster sugar with a fork to coat them lightly.
Keep in an airtight container. Remarks
