Candied Orange Peel

Food gawk fir real

Great as a garnish, or on it's own. You can also cover these in chocolate!!

Candied Orange Peel

3 to 4 oranges
2/3 cup water, plus extra for boiling
1 cup sugar

Using a vegetable peeler, peel the oranges. Try to get as much of the peel as you can, including the white pith. Cut into thing slices about 1/8 on an inch thick. Bring about 2 cups of water to a boil. Boil the peels for 5 minutes. Drain and repeat. This removes most of the bitterness. Combine with 2/3 cup water and the cup of sugar. Bring to a bowl and reduce to simmer. Add the orange peels. Simmer for 5 minutes. Cool. Transfer to a small bowl and let the orange peel sit in the syrup overnight. Remove from syrup and toss in granulated sugar. Lay out until dry and firm.
