Boiling orange peels


1.Place orange peels in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 20 minutes, drain and set aside.

2.In medium saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil and cook until mixture reaches thread stage, 230 degrees F (108 degrees C) on candy thermometer, or small amount dropped in cold water forms a soft thread. Stir in peel, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Drain.

3.Roll peel pieces, a few at a time, in remaining sugar. Let dry on wire rack several hours. Store in airtight container.

    nice...heard if u let the orange peels sit in vinegar for a few days (hmm...or was it a week?), makes a great "all natural" cleaner for your house (in place of chemical filled cleaners).
