I recently had dinner at a charming restaurant where the final dish passed around was candied orange peel. It was received with the sort of enthusiasm that white truffles usually get.
It made me wonder why we hardly see this simple but wonderful recipe anymore. I have become a curator of forgotten recipes, and this recipe for Candied Citrus Peel will be my first endeavor to give back an almost lost treasure.
There are a number of steps in this recipe, but they’re all simple, so don’t be discouraged at first read. Trust me, it’s an elementary process, and the result more than makes up for the effort.
