Tea is an indispensable traditional heritage in our country. We should inherit it. What kinds of tea do you know, except for the more common green tea and black tea, as well as the popular scented tea and fruit tea, today I want to tell you all It is a kind of fruit tea-grapefruit tea, a health drink made from grapefruit, sucrose, etc. The “Compendium of Materia Medica” records, “Diet, eliminate bad gas in the stomach and intestines, relieve alcohol and toxins, cure drinking and anger, and not think about eating. Faint, reduce phlegm and relieve cough”. In ancient my country and other countries, Japan and Korea used to eat grapefruit tea. So do you know how to make grapefruit tea with grapefruit peel?
Method one, the raw materials are 500 grams of grapefruit, 100 grams of sucrose, and 250 grams of Sophora japonica nectar. 1. Boil the glass bottle with water for 5 minutes and sterilize it for use. 2. Wash the grapefruit with warm water at 65 degrees Celsius and soak for 5 minutes. 3. After 5 minutes have passed, use a clean towel to absorb the moisture of the grapefruit. Then peel the grapefruit, paying attention to three parts. First is the grapefruit peel (the oily part), then the white flesh between the grapefruit peel and the grapefruit pulp, and finally the grapefruit pulp. 4. Cut the grapefruit peel into about 4 to 5 cm long, about the size of potato shreds. The same is true for white flesh. Cut it and put it aside for later use. 5. Peel the grapefruit pulp, without the skin or pit, just the pulp. Put the pulp into a large container and “squeeze” it with a spoon or other utensils. 6. After stirring, put the grapefruit tea in the prepared glass bottle, seal it, and put it in the refrigerator. You can eat it after about 10 days.
Method 2: 1. Materials needed: 1 grapefruit, 500g honey, 100g rock sugar, 1 spoon of salt, and appropriate amount of water. 2. Smear the grapefruit with a layer of salt and brush it clean, use a knife to scrape off the outermost yellow-green skin thinly, as thin as possible, with less white flesh inside, otherwise it will be very bitter. 3. Peel the grapefruit flesh and tear it into small pieces. Cut the peeled yellow skin into filaments about 3 cm long and 1 mm thick. The thinner the better. Put the cut grapefruit skin in salt water and marinate for 1 hour. . 4. Put the marinated grapefruit peel in clean water and cook for 10 minutes on medium heat to soften and remove the bitter taste. 5. Put the processed grapefruit peel and pulp into a clean oil-free pot, add a small bowl of water and rock sugar, and boil it over a medium-low heat for 1 hour until it is viscous and the grapefruit peel is golden and translucent. Stir it frequently to avoid sticking to the pan. 6. After letting cool, add honey and mix well to make honey grapefruit tea.
