"This takes a bit of effort but is very flavorful. The candied peel can be kept in a jar in the refrigerator for a very long time."

Step 1

Grate fruit peel slightly to release oil.

Step 2

Cut into thin strips about 2-4 inches long and place in a heavy pan.

Step 3

Cover with 1½ cups of cold water and bring slowly to a boil.

Step 4

Let boil about a minute and drain.

Step 5

Put back in 1½ cups of cold water, bring slowly to a boil, let boil 1-10 minutes, and drain.

Step 6

Repeat this process a third time.

Step 7

For each cup of peel make a syrup of ¼ cup water and ½ cup sugar.

Step 8

Bring the syrup and the cup of peel to a boil and let boil until all of the syrup is absorbed and the peel is transparent--about 1½ - 2 hours.

Step 9

Roll in granulated sugar and dry on a rack for about 2 hours. The dried peel should be firm but not too hard.
