Think you can’t re­pur­pose your food? Well, you can and here is my recipe for Can­died Cit­rus Peel. This is so easy and de­li­cious. You can dip it in melted choco­late, add to party mix or add it to ice cream and cook­ies.

-2 large or­anges or lemons

-3 tan­ger­ines or grape­fruit

-1 1/3 cup su­gar, plus ex­tra for dust­ing

-1/3 cup wa­ter

Slice the rinds into strips and re­move the white pith. Add wa­ter and su­gar in a cov­ered saucepan and bring to boil over medium heat stir­ring of­ten. Add the cit­rus peels and con­tinue to boil stir­ring til su­gar is dis­solved. Re­duce heat and cook un­cov­ered till the peel is al­most translu­cent (12-15 min­utes). Drain on wire rack till they are cool enough to han­dle but still warm. Toss them with a lit­tle su­gar and al­low them to dry on wire rack 1-2 hours.
