● Peels of 3 pomelo fruit
● 750 g sugar
● 750 g water
● juice of 1 lemon
● 1 sprig rose geranium
Wash the pomelo very well and dry with a towel. Taking the whole pomelo fruit, grate the pomelo peel using a grater paying attention not to reveal any of the white part of the fruit Next slice the pomelo fruit, separating the peel from the flesh, which we discard.
Each pomelo yields about 12-14 slices. Once all pieces are peeled, put them in a pot and cover with water. Put the pot to boil on high heat, and once the water starts to boil, boil for 10 minutes. Then put the peels in a colander to drain away the bitter juice. Repeat the same process another 4 times until the bitterness of the fruit is gone. Once that process is done, put the peels in a colander to drain and to cool. Once the peels have cooled, wrap each peel and fix with a toothpick. Prepare all the peels and then put them in the pot. Add the water and sugar and boil for 35-40 minutes on medium heat until the syrup thickens. Just before turning off the heat add the lemon juice and the rose geranium sprig, stir and remove from the heat. To see if the syrup has the desired consistency, put some syrup on a saucer and allow to cool. Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the syrup is ready. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes, remove the rose geranium sprig and store in glass sterilized jars.
