Candied orange peel - recipe (including photos)

  • 5 oranges
  • 250 grams of sugar
  • water

Wash the oranges throughly and keep them in a bowl with cold water for about 1 hour (it's preferable to buy organic oranges).

Peel the oranges and put them in a pot full with cold water.

Put the pot on fire and let it boil for 10 minutes. Change the water with clean hot water which you kept boiling in a separate pot.

Let it boil for another 15 minutes or until the orange peel is soft.

Drain the orange peels and let them cool.

Cut them in small strips and clean the white part of the orange slowly.

Mix the juice from the 5 oranges with the sugar and let it boil.

Add the orange peel over in the boiling the juice and let it boil for another 20 minutes.

Drain them on a rack for 2 - 3 days.

After that you can keep them in a jar and use when needed.
