How To Peel A Pomelo

Pomelo is like a mega grapefruit. Except that the flavor is milder and sweeter.  We all love it.  Except that peeling it takes quite a bit of time.  How come? you ask.

Because this is the way my grandmother taught me to peel it and this is the way I now insist on peeling it.  And now I want to record it down for posterity.

Using a sharp knife, cut off the top as shown.

Then score the pomelo with a knife about 2/3 of the way, abput 1-2 cm deep.

Using your hands, peel the skin but do not peel it off totally.  Leave the bottom attached together.  Remove the fruit and peel off the white pith.

Tadah! Now wear the pomelo hat and parade around the room as per my tradition!
