 Ingredients List

  • 6 Navel oranges
  • 1 3/4 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Clear corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 c Water
  • 3 oz Orange gelatin


Cut oranges in half lengthwise & remove fruit. Cut peels into strips. Cook
peels in 8 C. boiling water for 15 min. Drain & repeat. In same pot, cook
sugar, syrup, & 1-1/2 C. water over high heat until sugar is dissolved. Add
gelatin & peels & simmer for 20 min. Remove from heat. On a sheet of waxed
paper or microwave paper, sprinkle 1 C. granulated sugar. Lightly roll the
peels in the sugar, a few at a time, until the peel is evenly coated. Add
sugar as needed as supply is used. Place in one layer to dry overnight.
Store in airtight containers. Will keep indefinately, if kept dry.

Lemon or Lime peels may be used with the corresponding gelatin, but I've
never tried it.

For slightly less sweet peels, delete the corn syrup & increase sugar to 3
