Candied Orange Peel
This recipe is different than the Candied Orange Peel which is bought at snacks stores and eaten as is, we make the orange peels in order to use them in various recipes that require this ingredient.
The store-bought product is dry with a thick layer of sugar topping it, it’s nice eaten on its own but for baking I would use the below version of Candied Orange Peel, it really keeps the orange flavors and citrus zest.
For one batch of candy orange peels I usually use a mix of oranges and lemons, well it can be any citrus flavor kind of fruit, like grapefruit, clementine, basically, whatever you can think of which we can use its peel.
We keep the orange peels in a sealed jar inside the fridge, it can last for months easily. After using all the orange peels, we can use the intoxicating sugar-orange liquid, in which the orange peels were stored in. You can add it to fruit shakes, instead of water and sugar, into sponge cakes and to many more cakes and pastries.
