Candied Grapefruit Peels

Part of Haakons holiday gift from work was a giant box of grapefruits. We've been trying to figure out interesting ways to use them and this is one Haakon came up with. Have any other ideas? Leave a comment bellow.

He used the Epicurious recipe and made a couple variations, one with a sugar coating and one diped in chocolate. The chocolate pairs really well with the grapefruit, with a pretty complex interplay of different tastes. It's pretty awesome.

My next idea is to melt the dark chocolate and use some of my szechuan pepper infused vodka to add a spicy numbing sensation to the chocolate. 

This and some other really awesome desserts were brought to the table this Christmas feast.
