    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    cup

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Using a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the fruit, leaving the bitter white pith.
    2. 2
      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.
    3. 3
      Place the strips in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, drain, and refresh under cold running water.
    4. 4
      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.
    5. 5
      Spread peel on a sheet of foil to cool, separating the strips.
    6. 6
      Store in a sealed jar in the refrigerator. The candied peel will keep for up to 6 months.

      This turned out great! The only thing I did differently was to coat the pieces with sugar after cooking (see Candied Citrus Peels Peel). This time I used only oranges, but using lemon and grapefruit would make a really colorful presentation.

      This method worked like a charm. I made candied tangerine peel to top a tangerine and chocolate cake. It is a pain to peel the tangerines so that all the pith is left behind, but it makes for a better finished product.
