These candied grapefruit peel are so good. I have made them lots of times before,But, this recipe is easier. Thank you Sharon.


  1. Take peel(make sure that no white part is on the peel, it's the bitter part) from 3 grapefruit and cook 5 minutes in water.
  2. Drain and repeat twice.
  3. Cut peel into strips (scissors work well).
  4. Cook peel gently in corn syrup until most is absorbed and the peel is shiny.
  5. Watch carefully as it can burn.
  6. Drain, cool, roll in granulated sugar.
  7. Lay out on cookie sheet to dry.
  8. Will keep in a tightly covered jar a long time.
