3) remove water from the bowl, pour cold water again, and wait until the next day
4) repeat the operation from the previous day so that the peels stay in water for at least 3 days
5) remove water from the bowl, put peels in a saucepan, pour about 700 ml/24 fl oz of cold water, add sugar, then mix the ingredients
6) put the pan on the stove over very low temperature and boil orange peels until syrup drops (about 2-3 hours)
7) candied orange peel is ready when it’s glassy and the syrup has dropped to about half the volume of water from beginning
8) put orange peels in sterilized jars, then pour over hot syrup to cover them completely
9) seal the jars with lids and keep them in a dark, well-ventilated place (recommended)

Final Notes for the Candied Orange Peel Recipe

➡️ Have you ever wondered how to make candied orange peel at home? If yes, watch the video and read this tutorial to learn the process that my grandmother taught me.

➡️ Apart from orange peels, you can do the same with lemon peel, grapefruit peel, or a mixture of these citrus peels. Whatever type of citrus peel you’re going to use, it’s important that they have a thick peel. The thin peels will boil too much and the confinement will not be successful.

➡️ Another important tip is to follow the exact recipe. Change the water every day and be patient to pass the indicated time.

➡️ The candied orange peels are used either as an ingredient in various creams and fillings for homemade cakes or to garnish cakes or cream cakes.
