Method

  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
