Over the holidays, I did rather a bit of food preparation. And yes, by food preparation, I suggest the kind that involves heat.

Something I have never ever made before, but have actually had bookmarked for ages– are candied citrus peels. Now, most recipes and/or ideas I bookmark are typically craving driven, however these, were discussion driven. I did not so much care about the food part, I simply cared about the procedure and the last result. Nevertheless, I’ve to say that I did end up really enjoying them taste smart, and, so did Polo! Sure, they are not much more than sugar + more sugar, but I suspect if you are going to eat sweet, it might also be organic, preservative/dye cost-free, and homemade.

For most, this dish would be nothing short of a punishment provided the information that enters cutting the peels. For a detailed oriented person like myself however, I found it extremely relaxing. Then once again, I am the individual who’ll scribble the exact same word over and over for hours on end to soothe my nerves … Think I am kidding? Simply look at my work desk– I in fact think it’s borderline disordered.

Any who, with that being said, it’s clearly not the quickest dish. But if it’s any consolation, the aromatic qualities from beginning to complete (peeling, cutting and boiling of the orange rinds) will certainly help soothe any tension it might bring.

As a side note, the initial dish called for 1 cup of sugar to every 1 cup of water. However, I couldn’t bring myself to use that much sugar. So rather, I used 1/2 Cup of sugar for every 1 Cup of water. In the end, it worked fantastic– leaving absolutely no reason to use the initial 1-to-1 ratio!

For the Recipe

10 ripe oranges

2.5 Cups of organic (preferably turbinado) sugar

5 Cups of water

1. Develop 9 slits from leading to bottom around each orange– like a beach ball (see images below). Delicately peel the rind from each section and julienne very finely. Reserve.
2. Location rinds in a pot, cover with water and offer a boil. Let boil for about 10 mins, remove from heat and drain.
3. Location 5 cups of water and 2.5 cups of sugar in pot and bring to a boil. Stirring occasionally to ensure the sugar is liquefied. Include strips to boiling syrup, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer carefully till strips are translucent. About 1 hour.
4. Utilizing a slotted spoon, transfer strips to a wire rack, with parchment paper underneath.
5. optional: roll strips in additional sugar. Personally, I skipped this step.
6. Arrange in a single layer on a wire rack, and delegate dry– Mine took about 24 hours provided the general decrease in sugar.
