Last year when I was shopping for dried fruits & nuts for soaking in Brandy, I scoured the neighborhood thoroughly looking for some candied orange and lemon peel.
I didn’t find. I found it in a gourmet store for exorbitant prices. I bought little to just add the jazz to my Eggless Christmas cake.
This year I realized that I am dumb and I can easily make it at home.
I set out to prove myself less dumb than projected.
I started with making Candied Lemon Peel and ended up caramelizing it. Again dumb! But it still tasted good… very good!
So I made the second attempt at Candied Orange Peel – I got perfect result. So much so that I had to keep out a whole cup of Candied Orange Peel for V to snack upon.
In his words, it leaves a very good aftertaste and he loves munching on 1-2 peel every night before sleep to leave great taste in his mouth.
When he praises something with so many words, I bow down as he is very hard to please!
You can use the same recipe or process to candy any citrus peel. Though the timing will vary upon thickness of the peel and quantity.
