During the first stage of the process it simmers away:
Well my friend Gloria is always cooking up yummy things in her kitchen. She recently made a post about making candied orange peel. Her post inspired me to give it a try. Since we had a goodly amount of pomelos from our tree, they yielded quite an amount of peel for just such a treat. I found this recipe for making Candied Pomelo Peel and it was perfect and so easy with a simple illustration too.
The syrup took upwards of an hour and a half to finally reduce at a slow simmer. Then it was a matter of laying them out to dry.
Mmm... they looked so good at this stage and ready for enjoying.
But the recipe said to toss them in granulated sugar, so that was the final step.
They are delicious and bittersweet. I really like their color! They remind me so much of Mexican candied sweet potatoes "dulce de camote". Now I just have to find a nice container to store them in. This is such an easy thing to do with something you'd normally throw away. I'm thinking I'll do this again with oranges and even ginger. It's so easy and fun!
