Candied Citrus Peel Recipe - Homemade Candied Orange Peel


Candied peels are great in cakes or puddings. It is such a easy recipe to make using the peels of citrus fruits which we will normally throw away. You can make them a bunch and store them in fridge and use whenever needed.



This is so easy to make, you dont need any special ingredients for this, just peels, water and sugar.


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins
Resting Time : 3 to 4 hours

Ingredients:

Orange Peels from 4 oranges
Lemon Peels from 6 lemons
Sugar - 1 cup 
Water - 1 cup + more
Caster Sugar - 3/4 cup

Method:

Remove the peels from fruit, slice off as much white part from the peels. Slice into strips and set aside.

Take water in a sauce pan, add the peels in and cook for 2 mins. Drain it.

Now fill fresh water in the pan and add the peels back in and cook for 3 mins this remove the bitterness from it. Drain it. 

Now take sugar and water in a sauce pan, bring it to a boil. Add the peels in and cook for 5 to 10 mins till it is done.

Now drain it and spread it in a parchment paper so it gets dry. Let it dry for 2 to 3 hours.
