How to make it

  • Quarter the oranges and remove from the rind. Scrape to remove the flesh and all white pith. Cut lengthwise into thin 2-inch strips.
  • In a large saucepan filled with cold water, place rind strips. Bring just to a boil, remove from heat, and strain. Repeat this step two times.
  • In a saucepan over a medium heat, completely dissolve the 1 cup of sugar in 1 cup of water. Optional ingredients of orange or almond extract may be added to sugar syrup if desired for flavor. Reduce heat to low; add the orange rinds and let simmer approximately 1 hour or longer or until the orange rinds are translucent. Using a slotted spoon, remove candied orange rind, shaking off excess syrup.
  • Immediately toss with sugar, using fork to separate pieces so they do not touch. Place on a wire rack to cool and dry.
  • Store in an airtight container for one week. When ready to serve candied orange rinds may be dipped in chocolate.

    Thanks - I was going to make Shuga's Orange Peel Cookies, but didn't have any candied rind. I know I have a recipe for this somewhere, but yours is conveniently right here! Thanks for sharing! - Natalie
