  • Summary

    Forget the juicy insides. The peel is where citrus's true flavor resides, as these svelte candies prove. Blanching does away with any bitterness, leaving behind only a lingering lilt. The sugary coating and charming wrapping increase the confection's appeal. Get the packaging how-to for Candied Citrus Peels.
