re: grapefruit

I do not know what to do with the grapefruit, but I make grapefruit
rinds for holiday presents.


Cut peel into strips and bring to a boil in plenty of water 5 times,
pouring off the water and starting fresh each time.  This parbouling
takes away some of the bitter taste.
Measure the peel and for each cup add:
     1/2 cup sugar
     1/4 cup water
Boil in this syrup till dry.
Roll each one in granulated sugar, and place in cookie sheet to dry.
Store in airtight container so that they won't dry out.
