Candied Fruit Peels
Fruit Water Sugar
Save peels from citrus fruits in as large pieces as possible. Boil 15-45 minutes, depending on thickness of peel; let cool. Use the edge of a spoon to scrape off ALL of the white part, leaving only the colored zest. Discard water or save for potpourri. Bring water and sugar to a boil. Keep adding sugar until you have a thick syrup. Add prepared fruit peels and simmer 30 minutes. Remove from syrup and dip both sides in sugar. Dry overnight on waxed paper. When dry, store in layers in airtight container, separated by wax paper. Will keep for months.
