How to Make Candied Orange Peel

Step-by-Step

  1. Quarter each orange. Remove peel and slice peel into thin slices. About a quarter inch in length.
  2. Put slices in a sauce pan and cover in cold water. Bring cold water to a boil and remove the orange peels immediately from heat as soon as water hits a boil. Let the peels cool completely. (Repeat this process 2 or three times, until peels loose their stiffness and become more spongy.)
  3. Remove any excess pulp from peels.
  4. Place peels back into the sauce pan over medium low heat , adding orange juice, 3 cups of sugar and vanilla extract. Stir until sugar dissolves
    Simmer this mixture for about an hour. Stirring occasionally.
  5. Drain peels from sauce pan.
  6. Preheat oven to 250'F
  7. Put remaining 3 cups of sugar in a mixing bowl and toss the orange peels until they are completely covered.
  8. Transfer the peels to a cookie sheet.
    Bake for about 5-10 minutes, or until orange peel becomes slightly translucent.
  9. Side note: if you allow the peels to dry coated in the sugar they make a good candied orange peel treat. Or you can bake like I did and you get a nice sugary gummy peel that goes good in ice cream, or stuffed in cakes or dipped in chocolate!!!
