I loooooove citrus peel candy.  Dh tends to throw out the peels I save (it takes me a day or two to get enough peels) before I can make them.  Your instructions are a ton easier than the way I got out of a cookbook.  When I make some I'll have to let you know how it went.

I finally made some candied orange peel to adorn my gingerbread loaf.

It's really delicious! Hopefully I won't eat all the peel before I make the gingerbread..lol.

Thanks for the recipe!!!

Thanks for your inspiration!  This Thanksgiving was spent at my fiance's aunt's house in the country and she let us raid her Meyer lemon tree  Cheesy  We made lemonade and ate the yummy pulp, then I made candied peels. 

Just because it might be helpful,  I used smaller proportions along these lines:

Peel of 2 lemons (white membrane removed)
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup water

Cut peels into strips; stir 3/4 cup sugar and 3/4 cup water together; boil and then stir in the peel strips.  Simmer at lower heat for 15 minutes.  Use a slotted spoon to fish out the strips; roll in the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar.  I used a spoon to help separate the strips and to spoon sugar over them.  Let cool and store at room temperature.

The smaller proportions worked well, and they didn't take long to make...but they're almost gone!  So I'm definitely going to try your method in the near future so I can make more as gifts.

I then used the lemony syrup to sweeten a glass of the lemonade we had just made  Grin
