- 1 orange, peel only
- 1 cup granulated sugar (plus more for later)
- 1 cup water
Peel the orange, and remove as much of the white pith as possible from the inside of the peel. Cut the peel into thin strips.
Put 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Add the orange peel, return to the boil.
Reduce heat and simmer until the peel is very soft, then remove the strips to drain on a rack. Reserve any syrup left over for another use.
Toss the peel with 2 tablespoons or so granulated sugar. Let the peel dry another hour or so, then store in an airtight container.
