  • To make candied orange peel, cut peel into ¼” wide strips. Place the peels in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, drain the water and repeat again with more cold water. Drain the water once again. In a medium pan, heat ¾ cup water and 1 ½ cups granulated sugar. Simmer for 8 minutes. Add the peel and simmer for 40 minutes. Do not stir. Drain any remaining syrup, sprinkle with sugar and place peels on a cooling rack to dry.
