These candied grapefruit peel are so good. I have made them lots of times before,But, this recipe is easier. Thank you Sharon.
These candied peels are DELICIOUS! This is the first time I was able to make them without having one huge lump of peels on my hands. I followed the recipe and think the corn syrup made the difference. I chopped some of it into yoghurt, to die for! Made and reviewed for the Spanish & Portuguese Forum, June 2012.
Made using a grapefruit, orange, and lemon. While the lemon was good, only some of the orange and grapefruit were good. Had some issues with how to get all the white pithy part and not have it too thin. Also had issues with the ingredients calling for a cup of water, so ended up adding it to the corn syrup. Based my review on the part that turned out as I think the part that did not turn out may have be my lack of skill in making this kind of candy.
I did not give this any stars because it was more than likely my error these did not turn out right. I have never made candied peel before so I made them to specs yet was unsure if I was doing it right. I wasn't sure if rind meant peel to include the white part on the skin (Thanks so much for making the correction in the recipe since this review). I dried them on a rack, but they never seemed to dry thoroughly even after 3+ hours. I found the sweetness ended with an awfully bitter taste. I will have to try making them again soon. -Bird-
Easy recipe and fun to make. The end result would make a pretty garnish on a dessert tray. I made both grapefruit and orange and thought it was very unique and surprisingly tasty! Be sure to pay attention to step 5. Thanks for posting this Sharon :)
These were really easy to make...the difficult part for me was coming up with enough grapefruit peels (nice skinned grapefruit have been in short supply here this season) all at the same time to make them. I make an orange rind candy and correctly expected something similar, but these have a more bitter taste, which is OK too! They didn't last 24 hours in our house although both of my 'picky eaters' stuck their noses in the air. Thanks for sharing this recipe Sharon!
