Make Your Own Candied Citrus Peels

Making your own glace citrus peels is easy. Instead of wasting your money on those tubs of peels available in stores for holiday baking (and who knows how much high fructose corn syrup is in those tubs?), make your own when the best citrus is in season.

You can save the peel from lemons, oranges, grapefruit and pomelos as you eat them.  Just toss the peel into a zipped plastic bag and keep in the refrigerator up to 4 days. I used Jacques Pepin’s method as guidance here.
