Diy: Candied Citrus

Ingredients

Oranges (washed and scrubbed, organic would be better)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

Preparation

1
Cut fruits into slices or slivers. If using peel alone, discard as much of the bitter white pith as possible.
2
Put cut peel into a pot and add just enough water to cover the whole lot.
3
Put over medium heat for 15 mins. Discard liquid and repeat the process with fresh water 3 -4 times. (I did it only 3 times as I prefer a little bitterness to the peel).
4
Discard liquid and allow peel to dry out a little on a rack.
5
Meanwhile, prepare the syrup.
6
Place the sugar and water in a pan and allow sugar to dissolve completely on low heat.
7
When completely dissolved, place peel into syrup and leave to simmer until most of the syrup is absorbed and peel looks translucent.
8
Remove from pan and coat evenly in powdered sugar. Leave on racks to dry.
9
Store in an airtight container and keep in a cool, dry place.
