Step 1

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.
