While I was browsing through a blog I met with an interesting post. I sat glued to my seat until I read it completely and then tried it in my kitchen immediately. Came back and posted a comment on Kevin's blog ''Closet Cooking''. The original recipe can be seen in the link http://www.closetcooking.com/2011/02/candied-orange-peel.html

This recipe was simple, easy and made out of just 3 ingredients. It's chewy, crunchy and the best part is that the main ingredient of this recipe is orange peel, which is mostly discarded by us.

The original recipe had 3 oranges and 1 cup sugar, but I tried with 1 orange as a tester with the same 1 cup sugar. It was good since the oranges were slightly sour and I didn't want the bitter taste to predominate.

ORANGE ---- 1
SUGAR ----- 1 cup
WATER ----- 2 cups


Cut the top part of the orange. Make four slits on the top skin               
Peel the skin and you shall get four pieces

Slice them thin and long

Boil 4 cups of water in a pan and cook the orange slices for 15 mins. Drain and rinse well. This helps to remove the bitter taste of the peel

Mix sugar with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add the cooked peels to it. Simmer and let it cook tender for another 45 mins

Drain the peels from sugar syrup and roll it in a plate of sugar. The sugar granules will coat the peels. Note to drain the syrup well or else they would soak when rolled in sugar

Leave it to dry for a few hours. Enjoy!
