* candied lemon peel

Posted on January 30th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Martha.

One of my postdocs made candied citrus peel to share with the lab, and it was so tasty I had to try a batch.  I used this recipe from Martha, except that it took a little longer than advertised for the meyer lemon peels to turn translucent.  I also kept them as “flakes” instead of slicing them into thinner strips.  We’re having them tonight with strawberry shortcakes!

    That sounds sooo good. I love lemon. Thanks, I will look up this recipe from Martha.

    You should make candied orange peel too – it’s delicious! When it’s oven dried, then pulverize it into powder, “dust” shrimp in it and saute. Unbelievable!!

    I made a huge batch of Martha’s candied citrus peel and used the rest of the lemons to make jelly with Thai basil, so good! I made way too much though and could not finish it all before it turned hard as a rock! Oh well!
