candied orange peel recipe

Of course you've eaten oranges since you were a baby, but have you ever tried a candied orange peel recipe prepared like this? Candied orange peel is an especially good thing to add to boxes of assorted candy because its bright color makes an attractive contrast to other kinds of candy.

What You Need:

2 thin-skinned oranges
½ cup sugar
¼ cup water

How to Make It:

Remove peel from oranges, cover with cold water in saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then cook slowly until the orange peel is soft (this takes about 15 minutes). Drain, remove white portions of the skin by scraping gently with spoon. Cut the peel into thin strips.

Dissolve the sugar in the water; boil until it threads from the tip of a spoon. Add orange peel, cook 5 minutes. Drain, and when cool dip each piece in granulated sugar.
