Grapefruit Strings

1 lg. grapefruit
1 1/2 c. sugar
Food coloring (opt.)


Peel grapefruit; cut peel into strings or in shapes as desired. Cover peel with water and bring to rapid boil. Change water, and bring to boil. Change water 5 times in all, bring to boil each time. After last draining, add the sugar while peel is warm, and place over slow heat so sugar won't scorch. Cook until sugar forms a syrup. then add red or green food coloring, if desired. Cook until peel absorbs all the syrup. Turn out onto a platter of dry sugar and let peel take up all the dry sugar it will hold. Store in covered containers. Will keep indefinitely, when properly stored.
