camalina dried pomelo peel

Camalina dried pomelo peel.

I bought this tin of local dried pomelo peel by Camalina of Healthhealing Products on a recent trip to Thailand, at a bazaar in Lamphun town. The stall seller offered me a taste and I liked this tangy, sugared citrus product immediately - but, bearing in mind that we didn't have much luggage space to spare, I bought only one 100g tin for 35 baht.

Now? I kick myself for not taking up her offer to buy 3 tins for 100 baht. I've been slowly savouring this delicious candied pomelo peel ever since I got back from my holiday - it's firm, sweet, with a hint of astringence, and those little square-cut cubes are so easy to pop into the mouth that they are really quite addictive. The packaging is also nice enough that it would make a good gift idea.

The ingredients are comprised of pomelo peel, sugar, citric acid, and sulfur dioxide as a preservative. My only gripe is the presence of sulfur dioxide, but it is so common in dried fruit products anyway, so regardless of that, I'd happily buy more of this dried pomelo peel - if only I can get my hands on it! Maybe when I next visit Thailand again, whenever that is...
