Candied orange peel

This is a spoonful of orange syrup - it tasted like heaven. The smell of simmering orange peels filled the house with an incredible smell while I did some kitchen chores, read the paper. I had 5 degrees to go on the candy thermometer when I left the kitchen.

When I smelled the burning orange peel I knew my giant cough drop was done.

Fotted! (A word verification word is sometimes just the one one is looking for.)

At least you got a great blue/orange shot before the burn.

Happy New Year, Mrs. Lear!

Oh noooo! If they aren't too burnt try rolling them in sugar - I've saved slightly burnt candied peel before with that trick!

I could not even chip out a piece of orange peel! All was lost!
