Candied Orange Peels (source Calabria from Scratch)

Hi! What a lovely sunny day we have here in Moscow! And I feel that spring is close :o), but in Russia we steel have a lot of snow by now.
Ooh, yes, and what about candied orange peels? I made them for Christmas :o) and it was such a treat. Yummy-yummy-yum! :o)

  Cut the peel of oranges into strips about one inch. Boil them for two minutes five times (every time use cold  & fresh water). After the third blanching remove the white pith. After the five times boiling make the simple syrup with 4 cups of sugar, 2 cups of water and 2 tblsp. of lemon juice. Add the peels and cook until the peels look glassy ad translucent (about an hour). Remove from the heat and let them cool in the syrup over night.
 Next morning remove the excess syrup with your fingers and let the peels dry about 24 hours
 Coat them with the sugar :o)

All instructions are HERE at Calabria from Scratch (VIDEO)
Hope all of you are fine and I wish you all the best :o)
