Candied Ruby Grapefruit Peel
By Melissa's Corporate Chefs

Ingredients
2 each Organic Grapefruit
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Water
1 cup Superfine Granulated Sugar

Directions
With peel still on fruit, quarter peels lengthwise then remove, keeping pieces of peel intact. Reserve fruit for another use. Diagonally cut pieces of peel into 1/3-inch-wide strips.

Put peel in a 3-quart saucepan filled with cold water and bring slowly to a boil over moderate heat. Boil 1 minute and drain. Repeat procedure 4 times to remove bitterness.

Have ready a lightly oiled large rack set in a shallow baking pan.

Bring regular granulated sugar and water to a boil in a large heavy skillet, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add peel and boil, stirring, until most of syrup is absorbed, about 10 minutes.

Turn out peel onto rack, separating pieces. Dry candied peel, uncovered, at room temperature until only slightly sticky, 4 to 8 hours. Toss a few pieces at a time, in superfine sugar, shaking off excess.
