Measure out sugar in a mason jar. With a vegetable peeler, peel grapefruit and add skins to mason jar. Put lid back on, shake and let sit for at least 5 hours. Overnight works best.
In a small pan, toast fennel and coriander seeds over medium heat until you can smell aromatics, about 4-5 minutes. Add to sugar and peel mixture when it is still warm.
Add hot water to mixture. Cover and shake until well integrated. Let sit for 3 hours. Strain out solids and bottle. Good in refrigerator for 2 weeks.
