       Yield: 1 servings
       2 md Grapefruit (or 3), peels of
       3 c  Sugar
            Food coloring
   DIRECTIONS: Cover peel with cold water. Bring to boil and cook until
   tender, pouring off water and adding fresh cold water several times.
   Drain. With spoon, remove white inner portion of peel. With knife or
   tiny star cookie cutter, cut a few stars from peel, if desired. With
   scissors or sharp knife, cut rest of peel in thin strips. Make syrup
   by boiling 2 cups sugar with 1 cup water. Add a little red or green
   food coloring. (A drop or two of yellow coloring with red improves
   the finished color.) Add peel; cook over low heat until peel has a
   clear, candied appearance. Remove peel, 2 or 3 pieces at a time,
   allowing excess syrup to drain back into saucepan. Roll strips
   separately into remaining 1 cup sugar until well coated. Place on
   rack to cool. Store in tightly covered container in cool, dry place.
   Keeps at least a month.
