One of my favorite treats from candy shops is candied orange peel...especially if it has been dipped in dark chocolate. Yummy!
Not long ago I found an easy looking recipe at "Closet Cooking" http://www.closetcooking.com/2011/02/candied-orange-peel.html So when some beautiful oranges were juiced at the Whole Foods class we worked, I grabbed up the leftover rinds before they could be thrown away.
I followed the recipe and soon had my own treats. And better than the shops!
Next batch I will be more careful on draining the peels as I got a bit of sugar clumping due to the excess moisture. And I will do much longer slices for dipping in dark chocolate.
