Candied Citrus Peel

Orangette is a French candied orange peel.  I thought using a grapefruit would be a nice twist on the classic navel orange. Actually, I used a combination of both. Feel free to make this with any type of citrus peel. Candied peels are a nice decoration on a chocolate cake.

The best way to remove the peels from the grapefruit or orange is to cut off the top and the bottom of the fruit, score the from one end to the other, remove the peels and slice into thin strips.
