Talk about cheap! Make candied orange peels and use up what you'd normally throw away. You can also make candied lemon or grapefruit peel.
peels from 3 large oranges 3/4 cup water 2 Tbs. corn syrup 2 3/4 cup sugar (divided)
Cut peels into 1/4" strips. Boil in enough water to cover for 15 minutes and then drain. Boil the corn syrup, water, and 2 cups of the sugar and stir till sugar is dissolved. Add the orange peels and simmer for 40 minutes.
Put cookie racks on wax paper. Drain the orange peels. Put the peels onto the racks and drain 5 minutes.
Separate the peels and leave on the racks another hour.
