Instructions
  1. Peel the pummelos with a sharp knife, taking care to leave off as much of the white pith as you can. Save the fruit for salads or cooking.
  2. Cut the peel into strips about 1/2-inch wide.
  3. Place the peel in a heavy saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over a medium-high setting.
  4. Remove from the heat and drain. Repeat the boiling procedure 5 times. This will remove the bitterness.
  5. Drain the last time.
  6. Add the sugar and 3/4 cup water to the saucepan. Stir together. Bring to a boil over a medium setting.
  7. As it boils, add the peel, and turn the heat down to a low setting. Simmer uncovered for about 45 minutes and check. If the peel is translucent and very tender, it is done. It may take up to an hour or slightly longer.
  8. Remove the pieces from the pot with tongs, leaving the syrup in the pot.
  9. Allow them to dry on a cooling rack for about 1 hour. They should be a little tacky, but not wet.
  10. You can then choose to either roll them in sugar, or partially dip them in melted chocolate.
  11. Allow them to dry overnight.
  12. Sugar coated or plain candied peels can be stored at room temperature in a covered container. Chocolate dipped peels must be stored in the fridge.
