       Title: CANDIED ORANGE PEEL
  Categories: Holidays, Fruit
       Yield: 3 servings
  
            INGREDIENTS:
       8    Oranges
            Water
       1 c  Boiling water
       4 c  Sugar
  
   Makes about 3-4 lbs of candy.
   
   (TIP):   Collect  the  orange  halves over a period  of  time  and
   refrigerate  them in a plastic bag until you have enough to prepare
   candied peel.   You may candy *whole* orange halves, if you wish.
    Just boile them without cutting them into strips.  When cooled, they
   make lovely containers for candies and nuts, or holiday desserts.
   
   Wash the oranges.  Cut into halves and squeeze out the juice.  Use the
   juice for some other purpose,  of course.   Place the oranges  into  a
   large saucepan and cover with cold water.
   
   Place over high heat and heat to a boil.   Add cold water to cover
   again. Heat to a boil and drain.   Repeat this process five times in
   all. Drain well and scoop out the pulp.   Cut the oranges into 1/4
   inch wide strips.
   
   Combine  1 cup of boiling water with 2 cups of the  sugar.    Heat
   until the  sugar is dissolved.   Stir in the orange strips.    Place
   over medium heat  and  boil for about 30  minutes,  until  all  the
   liquid is evaporated.   Watch carefully so the peels don't scorch.
    Cool.   Roll the strips  in  the remaining 2 cups of sugar.   Place
   on waxed paper  to  dry. Package and store in airtight containers.
