Candied citrus peels

Candied Citrus peels

Candied peel is a delicious decoration for desserts and ice cream. It’s also wonderful dipped in chocolate to serve with coffee.

Makes about 1 cup.
Total preparation time: 30 minutes

3 firm, ripe lemons or oranges
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water

Using a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the fruit, leaving the bitter white pith. Using a sharp knife, cut the peel into strips, according to intended use. If you want to use the candied peel on cakes or tarts, cut it into matchstick strips; if candying to dip in chocolate, cut the peel into larger strips.

Step 2:
Place the strips in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, drain, and refresh under cold running water. Return to the saucepan, add the sugar and 1/2 cup water and cook over moderate heat until the liquid has evaporated and the peel is bright and shiny. Spread peel on a sheet of foil to cool, separating the strips.

Step 3:
Store in a sealed jar in the refrigerator. The candied peel will keep for up to 6 months.
