"Super! so happy to find a basic recipe for candied citrus peel! Added notes: For gorgeous presentation, cut citrus peel in spiral. For result more citrus peel-y and less candy-fied... do step 1 only 2..." See morex (instead of 3x), also skip the 10 min simmer. "
"This recipe is really yummy! I used orange peels and planned to use them to decorate a cheesecake; I had to stop myself from eating them all. I followed the directions exactly, and the orange peels ..." See morewere very sweet, not bitter at all. Just one word of warning -- take the peels out of the syrup no later than 15 minutes after you put them in; I waited a few extra minutes and the sugar syrup crystallized before I could get the last couple out. If that happens to you, just add some hot water to the pot. It'll wash away some sugar, but the peels will still tasted great."
"Worked great for me. Make sure you take the peels out of the sugar water after the 15 minutes...I waited too long, so they were a bit too gooey. I then chocolate coated them....AN EXCELLENT CANDY. ..." See moreVery well recieved. I have to hide them so they won't disappear so fast!"
