Candied Orange Peels for my Easter Dove or
Arancia Candita per la mia Colomba Pasquale
I’m planning to make the colomba next week so I decide to make my own candied orange peels besides I found beautiful oranges in the supermarket so I bought about 5 kilos, I knew the process would take 3- 4 days but I decided to challenge myself because the ones that are sold in the shops here are a kind of mummified orange peels, they are brown-green, hard and dry (I sometimes think they are taken from a pharaohs’ tomb…brrr). The result: soft, syrupy, sweet, bright beautiful color, gorgeous scent and delicious orange peels…*sight* I imagine them covered with dark chocolate….
Now, to those people involved in the orange/lemon peels mummification process …I bid you goodbye.
Please, let me know if you want the recipe
