Candied Orange Peels

One of my favorite things about winter are the big juicy oranges that show up in the produce section along with it. I’m talking about the oranges with the super thick peels and huge kernels of pulp. You know the ones. Anyway, I always feel like I’m tossing out the prettiest part and the best scent: the peel. I’ve seen lots about candied orange peels, but never considered making my own until I saw this recipe that also yields orange syrup and orange sugar on top of the candy-like peels. (Pssst… You can melt some dark chocolate and dip them for an extra special treat.)

    I was just saying to my mom the other day that the best oranges are in February. Thanks for the reminder to go get some today–I’m craving fresh squeezed OJ!

    I have a friend who makes these – so delicious and worth the effort. Dark chocolate makes them so much better…
