Good old Orange Peel!
Last month when I did the once monthly basics trip to the grocery store they had 4 pound bags of navel oranges for $1.29 so, I bought some and my favorite way of eating them is to peel and eat the sections. But before disposing of the peels, I got this urge and so I diced them and put them in a pan with 3 cups of sugar cooked to about 220 degrees and let them sit for a few hours - then heated again since there was still some juice left. Well, we have been enjoying some really good candied orange peel. The sugar crystallized and it turned out great. Stored in zip-lock and everytime someone goes by it we have been eating a handful of candy... Mmmmm Mmmmm good.
Smile, I can taste them.
My friend Mary made them for me for years.
