Description

Three ingredients are all that you need to make these delicious and sweet candied orange peels. While the process takes a few days, it will be well worth it once you are done. You can use these candies in a variety of ways, such as chopped and mixed into a cake batter, as a topping for ice cream, or mixed spinkled over a big dinner salad. Around the holidays you can package these up for a nice little edible gift.
