I made this and it turned out great, although I was unsure about adding the whole rinds, cut thinly, as the recipe seems to suggest. I always heard the white pith is very bitter and only the peel should be used in recipes. So I used a potato peeler to peel off very thin pieces of the rind with no pith and then I cut those in very thin strips. I also didn't use the cinnamon stick because that just didn't appeal to me. Also, I wound up with only 2.5 cups. Maybe if I had used the very thick rinds, with pith, the yield would have been greater.
