Candied Pomelo Rind

Ingredients

1 pomelo
2 cups sugar
2 cups water

Preparation

1
Use a paring knife to make four slices along the top of the pomelo rind to the bottom. Peel pomelo saving the fruit for a different purpose.
2
Carefully remove all of the white pith from the green peel. The pith is quite bitter so you want to remove as much as you can. Discard the pith.
3
Slice the pomelo rind into ¼ inch by 3 inch sticks.
4
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Place pomelo rind in the pot and blanch for one minute. Discard the water and rinse rind under cool water. Repeat this process three times. This will help to remove a lot of the rinds bitterness.
5
Place two cups of water and two cups of sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil to dissolve the sugar.
6
Add pomelo rind to the sugar water and simmer for 1-1 ½ hours, until the liquid has been absorbed and the rinds are translucent.
7
Carefully move the rinds to a rack and sprinkle with sugar. Let them dry for about 3 hours, turning them halfway through.
8
Store in a sealed container.
