Candied Grapefruit Peels
I love fresh squeezed juice. It’s one of Sunday’s little pleasures. Sure, I could make it anytime I want to but I never do. I always feel too rushed during the week. But Sunday is perfect. It’s a day of fresh squeezed juice, pancakes made from scratch and, if it’s warm enough, an afternoon spent in Dolores Park.
But every time I make it, I am a bit annoyed by all the left over peels. In fact, I feel this way anytime I eat or use citrus fruit in a recipe. And one can only add so much citrus to their worm composting bin, ya know? Sure, the city composts too but it still feels wasteful. Especially since it takes quite a few grapefruits to fill up a glass. Even more so if you are making orange juice!
This country wastes too much food so I am always looking for ways to eat what is usually discarded. And while I haven’t gone full-on freegan (or even tried it), candying citrus peels seems like a reasonable compromise. Right?
