I posted a link to a candied pomelo recipe last week and I thought I’d get back to you on how it turned out. The recipe came from a lovely site called They Draw and Cook. The fruit comes from trees in my yard. These are fruit as big as my head.
I followed the recipe. Peeling
And finally drying on a rack and sugaring
How were they, you ask? They’re good. They’re great if you like citrus with a bit of a bitter edge sort of like grapefruit. I think they’ll be awesome diced and mixed into scones, or a fruit cake.
But then I followed the same recipe with a lemon and made candied lemon peel, the only difference being that I trimmed much more of the white pith off. Those were awesome – lemony, tart, sweet, intense. We’ve consumed almost all of it in two days.
My mouth is watering. And that photo with the sunglasses is so funny. Thanks for the giggle and the recipe.
Oooh, I just went back and noticed the “dip in chocolate” part. I bet that would be great.
Never had a pomelo before, but I might have to try one just to put sunglasses on it!
Sunglasses! You nut! Ha!
