Candied Fruit Peels


Save peels from citrus fruits in as large pieces as possible. Boil 15-45 minutes, depending on thickness of peel; let cool. Use the edge of a spoon to scrape off ALL of the white part, leaving only the colored zest. Discard water or save for potpourri.

Bring water and sugar to a boil. Keep adding sugar until you have a thick syrup. Add prepared fruit peels and simmer 30 minutes. Remove from syrup and dip both sides in sugar. Dry overnight on waxed paper.
