Candied Pomelo Skin Recipe

 Mamarazzi was chatting with Uncle Twilight Man but don't know how the topic comes to Pomelo. He mentioned that when he was small, he had tasted very nice pomelo skin pickled. Taste a bit like Marmalade .

It's first time that Mamarazzi heard of Pomelo Skin pickled. A search through google yields surprising result. There are so many thing can be done with Pomelo skin. There are Pomelo Skin braised meat, Pomelo skin salad , Pomelo skin candy and many more but she can't find anything about pomelo skin pickled.

 She noticed that the Pomelo Skin Candy looks interesting. Well, we still have one Pomelo leftover from our Ipoh trip...yup...Fresh Pomelo can be kept up to a month.

To have sweet pomelo, it's best to wait for the skin to feel soft before eating. Those fresh pomelo will not be as sweet.



 "Operated" on the pomelo.

 Cut the skin into strips. Cut away the "white" thingy as according to the recipe, that is the thing that makes the skin taste bitter.


 Blanched the pomelo skins 3-4 times in hot water.

 Last ....pour a cup of water plus a cup of sugar and boil the skin till translucent. 

 Mamarazzi rolled half of the skins in caster sugar while the other half she dipped in honey as Uncle Twilight mentioned that the ones he tasted have honey taste and it's wet.

 Jemur it under the sun. Too very long to dry properly leh.

 When I came home, it's still not properly dried. Those with sugar have harden but those with honey still sticky.
I tasted a slice......Mamarazzi asked me how? My reply was very diplomatic..."nice". But when she asked me to have some more I said "enough".

Mamarazzi tasted them...she likes the ones with sugar more than those with Honey. Honey with honey still tasted quite bitter. End up, she took them into the house and rolled everything in sugar.

Hmm.....learn new thing that day. Thanks uncle Twilight for the tips.

  2. Hi There, I just heard about the Malaysian airplane being shot down..Scary!!! Hope there was nobody you knew on that plane... Prayers for all.

    Whatever you fixed does sound SWEET... Whether it's with sugar or honey, it should have that really sweet taste.

    Tell Twilight HI from me. I don't hear from him anymore much.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

The other day, I ordeed this drink from Chatime.. Pomelo something.. And at the bottom of the drink there were these skins, taste like marmalade, but now, I belif they are pomelo, haha..

  13. Uncle SK heard of pomelo skin in cooking, especially the HK people loves to eat it stewed and then with prawn roes, but never heard about the pickled pomelo skin or pomelo skin salad at all.. this is something new and interesting actually to see how Mamarazzi prepared it..

  14. ahh, looks like nothing much left after removing the white part and cutting the skin into strips huh?? but first time doing this, little bit to try on lah.. hehehe, Uncle SK knows the next time Mamarazzi goes to Ipoh, she will borong lots of pomelo back home!! haha, not because she wants to eat the fruit, but she wants to make pomelo skin candies, so that she can munch while reading her books in the middle of the night~~ :p

    1. yes nothing much left unless it is a big pomelo la.

  15. actually the one with sugar looks good woh.. maybe next time Mamarazzi wanna use finer sugar and spread on them more evenly, then that could probably attract Small Kucing to eat.. you know, like those candies sold in loose weight in supermarkets.. but good lah this boy, so diplomatic, hahahaha!! just say "nice and enough" really courteous enough and politely rejected Mamarazzi!! so witty, Uncle SK likes~~ :D

  20. i have seen the candied pomelo skin but I don't dare to eat because I am scared of pesticide used during planting may be still in the skin. Good that Small Kucing is so diplomatic. If it is noodle, he won't say thank you but I have enough if he just ate one string of noodle, hehehe.

  21. Hey boy, your Mamarazzi is so amazing yet scary. Just a short morning talk and she got into working in the kitchen right away to dish out the pickled candy that I have not eaten for decades! I can say it was a long lost delicacy yet Mamarazzi brought it back to life within hours! I salute her la.

  22. Why you don't like it? I was the only one who went crazy and gaga over it when I was at your age! I guess your Mamarazzi and I have similar taste & interests as we seem to connect well. Less man more share, good for her.

    I am confident that she can make samples for friends and take orders for CNY. Someday it might become a big million dollar business!
