Grapefruit candies? Does anyone have any idea how to make the grapefruit candies that come out after dessert at Del Posto? Or recipe for similar?

It’s this candied grapefruit, but it almost just tastes like a partially dehydrated grapefruit with some extra sweetness and chew.

If you do a google search : The Del Posto Cookbook you'll find a recipe for this. I'm trying to get the link but don't know if it will work

The recipe is not in the Del Posto cookbook, but thank you for trying.

Did you even bother to try the URL inpatskitchen posted? Because the recipe is there.

I think you are both correct. I could not view any part of the recipe from the link. But I redid the search and I can see the end of the recipe, and it is the recipe I think. I will probably buy the book. Thanks for making me check again.

I would guess that it is a pate de fruit. Look for a recipe for that.

It’s not a pate de fruit. But thank you for the suggestion.

Hi! Not sure about Del Posto specifically, but here's a great guide from Alice Medrich on how to candy citrus peel: https://food52.com/blog/12308-how-to-make-candied-citrus-peel.

I’m more looking for candying the fruit not the peel. Thank you though.
