Recipe by Miss Fannie

This came from a very old, yellow newspaper clipping. I suspect it came from the Charleston News and Courier in the 1960's or 1970's. It was tucked in an old family recipe collection.


  1. Remove peel in lengthwise sections. Cover with cold water; boil for 5 minutes. Drain. Repeat three times. Dry well on paper towels. Cut peel into 1/4 inch strips. Combine sugar, corn syrup, and water in saucepan. stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Add peel and bring to a boil. Cook over low heat about 40 minutes until most of the syrup is absorbed. Drain off excess syrup. Roll peel a few pieces at a time in granulated sugar. Let dry for 24 hours on a wire rack. Store in a covered container.
