Sugared Orange Peel
Preparation time 20mins
Cooking time 20mins
Using a vegetable peeler, remove coloured part of peel from 1 large orange.
Cut into long, very thin strips.
Stir 3/4 cup (175 mL) each of granulated sugar and water in small saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and bubble gently for 2 minutes.
Add peel; simmer 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, place 1/4 cup (50 mL) granulated sugar into a small bowl.
Use a slotted spoon to remove peel from syrup, drain and separate the strips, place onto waxed or parchment paper. Then roll a few strips at a time in sugar until coated.
Let dry at room temperature for a few hours.
Store for months in a tightly sealed container in freezer.
