How to Make Homemade Candied Orange Peels

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 19 steps you must follow to make Homemade Candied Orange Peels in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Cut the peel of each orange into strips using a paring knife.
  • Step 2
  • Start at the stem and cut all the way through the peel, but not into the flesh of the orange.
  • Step 3
  • Remove each strip as you cut. Yields about 30 pieces.
  • Step 4
  • In a stainless saucepan, add about 2 1/2 quarts water and orange peels. There should be enough water that the peels are not crowded.
  • Step 5
  • Bring to a boil and allow the oranges to boil for about two minutes then drain.
  • Step 6
  • Repeat the process two more times.
  • Step 7
  • Place the oranges back into the pan and pour cold water over them and allow to cool. Once cooled, drain again.
  • Step 8
  • Partially remove the pith (white part of peel).
  • Step 9
  • With the paring knife, remove enough pith that leaves only about an eighth of an inch of pith on the peel.
  • Step 10
  • Return orange peels to pot, and bring to the final two minute boil. Then drain.
  • Step 11
  • Add the sugar and lemon to the saucepan with about 2 cups of water.
  • Step 12
  • Bring to a strong boil and stir occasionally to dissolve the sugar.
  • Step 13
  • Then reduce heat, but maintaining boil and cook until a begins to thicken.
  • Step 14
  • Add the orange peels and cook until the peels become glassy. (can take up to an hour) Remove from heat and let cool in the syrup until plump, may take several hours, or leave overnight.
  • Step 15
  • Once peels have absorbed syrup and plumped up, remove excess syrup by sliding from top with fingers.
  • Step 16
  • Place on drying rack and allow to dry one day or until no longer sticks to your finger when touched.
  • Step 17
  • Dip each peel in sugar by pressing down to evenly coat and return to drying rack. Allow one day to dry.
  • Step 18
  • Store candied orange peels in the freezer. Layer the orange peels between parchment paper and lay flat.
  • Step 19
  • Notes: When making homemade orange peels, the cutting and blanching process takes about 4 hours. But then, this recipe just needs time to allow the peels to absorb the syrup (over night) and dry on the counter (two days). This recipe works well for dipping into chocolate or as a practically fat free snack. May increase sugar to 4 cups for an even stronger candied orange taste. *Slow food method adapted from Rosetta Costantino?s My Calabria
