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 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 decorate cakes or cream cakes.
Enjoy the candied orange peel!
