Re: Question about Drying Grapefruit

In _How to Dry Foods_ by Deanna DeLong, drying citrus fruits is not 
recommended due to their juiciness and lack of firm textured pulp.

You can, however, freeze grapefruit.  Peel and section them, removing all
membranes and seeds. Pack in container of desired size and freeze. (My
_Ball Blue Book_ calls for a 40% sugar syrup, but I've frozen them 
unsweetened before.)  Canning is also possible, as well as making 
marmalade with them.
