Cut the peel off the grapefruit, scrape all the bitter pith off the inside of the peel and cut into slivers. Blanch the peel for two minutes in boiling water.
Heat the sugar, water and blanched peel in a small saucepan without first dissolving the sugar. Boil until all the water has evaporated and the peel has been boiled dry. Remove peel from the pot and place on baking paper on a baking sheet until dried and hard.
