      These candied peels are DELICIOUS! This is the first time I was able to make them without having one huge lump of peels on my hands. I followed the recipe and think the corn syrup made the difference. I chopped some of it into yoghurt, to die for! Made and reviewed for the Spanish & Portuguese Forum, June 2012.

      Made using a grapefruit, orange, and lemon. While the lemon was good, only some of the orange and grapefruit were good. Had some issues with how to get all the white pithy part and not have it too thin. Also had issues with the ingredients calling for a cup of water, so ended up adding it to the corn syrup. Based my review on the part that turned out as I think the part that did not turn out may have be my lack of skill in making this kind of candy.
