I'd keep this in mind next time I get grapefruit, I'd like to try and soak it in broth or something first to see if it makes it less bitter

I'm terrible at breading things. I always end up getting the bread crumbs soggy after just a couple dips. :(

Hi Emmy, can you try any recipes with banana peels? I've heard the peels are super nutritional, but I don't know of anyway to make it tasty except pureeing it into a smoothie.

I would have loved to see what it would taste like if they were marinaded in a light sauce or something of the like before being fried. Maybe that would eliminate the bitterness. I think i shall have to try this myself.

And you can soak the stripped peels in white vinegar - great cleaning spray!

I grew up eating the pith of toronjas, limas/limones and naranjas! I love them! I also love eating the skin of many other fruits. My mom got me into eating them as a child. 😋

With that taste, maybe it was meant as a liver replacement instead of steak?, Possibly a sugar/vinegar marinade would help? It was so disappointing to hear it was bitter, it looked so good & would litterally be free.

Made this today and found it quite good but I really need to work on negating the bitter taste. As a trial run of: will it work, is it remotely edible and can I inflict it on my family? It works. It’ll make a brilliant salad sandwich and it tastes great with mayo, so maybe add some sweet chilli sauce to the mayo and soak the pith in brine for a couple of hours. I’ll keep you informed.

I think I might try this but treat it like chicken and marinade it in soy sauce first and then crumb it. I’m thinking that if I then put the patty in a either a sandwich with salad or a toasty with cheese and a sauce, it might make for a nice lunch...and payback to my mother who is making me eat gherkins - which I utterly detest. I don’t mind vegan or vegetarian food but for the love of all that’s holy take the damned mini gherkins out of the salads and put them on the side so I can avoid them. I got 7 of the suckers last time and I wanted to puke.

If you salt and press them like eggplant and pour off the bitter water, then rinse them off to get rid of salt and rehydrate, maybe then it wouldn’t be bitter? After that, maybe marinate in some bouillon with a splash of soy sauce or bisto?

That looks crazy, lol. So I have a suggestion for you to use the 'outer peels' of the grapefruit (oranges and lemon) without the pith. If you boil strips of skin it will leach out the bitterness, I think you do this twice. Then you boil in sugar and water, then roll in sugar and air dry for candied citrus peel. I think with your' steak', it might work out to boil pith too, but it might soak up too much water.

I really like your channel this is a great are so much fun if you lived in my town you and I would hang out and cook together lol...I talk a lot too .....would you please be my imaginary friend??
I really liked the weiners extravaganza...😁I know its not called that but....any way my house or my bedroom and kitchen are an old internment house from the Japanese internment camps in my tiny Town in British I was glad to see you share the story another terrible embarrassment in Canadian history. David Suzuki lived here during that time (I am sure you know who he is) I like to tell people I live in his house it could be true and it could be a lie 50/50 chance. An old timers friend here told me what it was like was not good for the people interned the had to buy kits from the mill and build there own homes. This is a beautiful valley in the Kootenays but there was some racism but I am told that mostly local folks were compassionate and she tells me her Father hired some of the men and they were excellent workers .., anyway there are many stories.....but one more thing ask me about the cat I found behind the wall while renovating...I hope you read this my son is 20 he introduced us during the 🐉 s beard episode....we are going to try that one day....your channel makes me more.....I talk alot too thing....I always used to call my son and his little friends kinda stuck so I use the expression too......thanks so much for your channel and if you are ever on "location" in the Kootenays we could get together to cook bannok...or dukabore wedding borscht .....😁....or oh man I gotta million ideas. Sigh Emmy is my new imaginary friend👍😁😳😐🤗 have fun!

you have to boil them in water first to remove the bitterness, only then you dry them, dip them in eggs and seasonings, then coat them with breadcrumbs or flour and then fry them.

There can't be much nutritional value in the pith. But it would fill your stomach...

My family in Cuba would use orange peels instead of grapefruit. I'm sure that's much less bitter than the grapefruit.

Maybe you could do like a dry rub or even marinate it like chicken? Idk definitely want to try this, have been trying to go vegetarian for a while and I love steak so much so I hope it’s a good alternative

When I make candied orange peels I boil them in water then drain it and repeat 3 times, to remove the bitterness. I wonder if that would help in this case.
Lux0rd - 29 days ago
I vote you try this again with some of the comment recommendations like soaking it in water and squeezing it out to remove the bitterness and/or try marinating it.
This would be a great way to not make waste if it can work
SolarizeYourLife - 29 days ago
I wonder if you have to boil it a couple of times just like you do lemon/orange rinds to make it candy...

I bet you could culture the pith with tempeh mold to make it meatier and increase the protein content.

The peels of grapefruit have many great applications - infuse gin with them, use them for baking, cooking seafood, put them in jam, self made juice or ice cream

tejb - Month ago
Hi Emmy. This one is really interesting! Maybe the vinegar and the sugar that's in ketchup would make it a nice marinade to mellow or significantly mask the bitter flavor. Not sure how absorbent the pith is but you could tenderize it with a meat mallet or score it with a knife before putting it in a ketchup bath for a few hours. Anyway, I present a theory. :) Another of your readers here in the comments suggested boiling to remove bitterness and to soften - that would work. Thanks for all you do for us. -T. :)

Maybe if you soaked the pith in salted water for half an hour or so first, it would lose some of the bitterness?

Lol great thing @emmymadeinjapan but you forgot the most important part you had to put the toronja skin in watter and press the water out with your hand and change the water for every time you press the water out with your hand. It takes the bitterness off same thing with dulce de toronja.

I would think that You would want to salt that for a while, like bitter melon, then wash the salt off, then season, then fry... The pith is the most bitter part of the grapefruit
YB E - Month ago
I know from making citrus peel candies that they need to be soaked in water and the water changed. Maybe soaking in salted water would help.
