Ingredients

  • * 1 cup Orange Peel
  • * 1-1/2 cup Water
  • * 3/4 cups Sugar, Divided

Method

    1. Remove the white pith part from the peel. This white part is bitter. Cut the cleaned peel into strips about 1/4 or 1/2 inch thick.
    2. Place the peels in a large saucepan and add 1 cup cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 40 minutes or until the peels are soft. Next, rinse them with tap water. Drain the strips in a colander.
    3. After that, place 1/2 cup sugar and remaining 1/2 cup of water in a medium-sized heavy-bottomed pan and cook until sugar dissolves. Add peel. Cook1 -2 minutes. Mix well.
    4. Remove from heat and place the peel on a wire rack and allow to dry overnight. After it has completely dried, toss with remaining 1/4 cup sugar and store in an airtight container.

Stella, thanks again. I just copied the orange peel recipe. I shall not be making it now, until I collect the peel. Have you a recipe for stuffed "malu miris" (stuffed capsicums)? If so, please post one on the site. That is delicious. Thank you in advance.
