      Great result! I followed the recipe to the letter, and the candied orange peel worked very well. I chocolate coated one end, and when that was cold, coated the other end with vanilla sugar. I used the peel to decorate a lovely chocolate mousse, which I made with Chilli Chocolate. I shall be making this again!!

      I must have done something wrong. By the time I was starting the 2nd cooking process I knew it would take longer than the 1 3/4 hrs. I didn't bother with the 3rd time, my navels weren't as thick as some are. I cooked them in the syrup until it was practically gone like the recipe said and ended up with a hard candy. I think my altitude must make a difference. And to top it off I wasn't thinking and burned myself on one of the pieces! I'm going to try again next week though.
