Candied Grapefruit Peels for snacking and garnishes

Sweet Citrus Candy – So Fun!

We’ve got a few grapefruits left over from the Christmas holidays. I was looking for ways to use them up in something remarkable.

Candied Grapefruit Peel is the answer.

The first time I saw this recipe, was in the December edition of Fine Cooking. After that it seemed the recipe popped up all over the place. Why have I never heard of this?

Something Different for Super Bowl Party!

Just in time for Super Bowl, these citrus chewies will add sparkle and zing to your Super Bowl Party table. Be unique!

Candied grapefruit peel is a spectacular topping for muffins, iced cupcakes and the like. The acid from citrus adds a stroke of boldness on cold dreary winter mornings! Candied grapefruit strips are like those old fashioned sugared orange candy slices but without all the sticky gelatins. For a real flavor blast, try candied peels as Brown Derby cocktail garnish.
