Candied Orange Peel

This is how I make candied orange peel to either dip in chocolate, use in biscotti or holiday breads.

Candied Orange Peel
Makes about 1 cup peel

Ingredients:
3 oranges, use peel only
water to cover
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar

Directions:
Peel oranges, scoring the peel into 5 or 6 sections to make them equal in size. Place the peel in a saucepan, cover with water and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and let cool. With a grapefruit knife, lift off most of the white pith so they will not be bitter.
Make a simple syrup:
In a clean saucepan combine the water and sugar. Bring to a boil and cook until the sugar dissolves. Add the peel and elt simmer until the liquid is absorbed. This will take about 45 minutes to an hour. Watch it so it doesn't burn. Lift the peel out onto waxed paper or parchment paper to cool.

So, the end product is the peels and not an orange syrup? And you just eat them or dip in chocolate, etc?

Yes, you can eat the candied peel, dip them in tempered dark chocolate after they have dried or use them in Christmas bread recipes and cookies. I posted an orange pecan biscotti recipe.
