Candied citrus peels – Greek cuisine recipe, such sweets can be cooked from the peel of lemon, orange or grapefruit and served with tea. If you only have lemons or only oranges, it is perfectly okay to cook separately, but a more interesting flavor is obtained when using the rind of several citrus fruits.
On the third day of cooking, boil the peel in syrup with citric acid, lemon juice and honey. Simmer over very low heat until the citrus peel becomes transparent and sinks to the bottom of the syrup. For a more interesting flavor, add a cinnamon stick. Transfer the finished candied citrus fruits to a jar, cover and store in a cool dry place.
