To prepare the crispy slices, combine water and sugar in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. After a couple of minutes of boiling turn it off and cool it. When it is at room temperature, slice the fruit, dry it in paper towel, dip it in the sugar syrup and place it over a nonstick paper over a sheet tray. Bake in a very mild 150 degree oven for 2 hours until they are dry and crisp. Flip them upside down after about one hour.

After about two minutes of boiling, add the zest and the cloves, turn off the heat and place the syrup in a bowl to cool. When it is cold, add the orange juice, the lemon juice and the grand marnier. Strain it and put it in the ice cream machine. Work it until it becomes smooth and add the egg white just before it's ready.
