Candied orange peels


Well-known member

3 navel oranges
1 cup sugar

Trim 1/2'' off ends of navel oranges, then make a slit in rinds and scoop out flesh. Slice peels into 1/3-inch-wide strips, put in a bowl, cover with water, and refrigerate overnight. Transfer strips to a medium pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Drain strips and set aside. In same pot bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil until sugar dissolves. Add strips. Simmer until soft and glazed, about 30 minutes. Dry strips on a rack until tacky. Roll in sugar and dip ends in melted chocolate, if you like.

I made those today:



Texture is easy to bite, bitterness is away and fruity, fresh taste is awesome. The pleasant aftertaste lingers long in the mouth. And that extra sugar is like a candy itself.

I could eat them all right away.

:blush: Maybe I will.

I love those things. My wife had a uncle that owned a bakery and would make those and candied grapefruit peel at Christmas time. Some he had half dipped in chocolate.
