The next time you find yourself with a surplus of citrus peels, don't throw them out! Use them to make candied citrus peel instead. Orange, lemon, or grapefruit peel can be candied to make a deliciously fresh, zesty treat.
Roll the candied peels in sugar and eat them plain, or store them in syrup and chop them up to use them in baking recipes. If you want to be really indulgent, dip the candied peels partially or completely in chocolate. They're also a wonderful decoration for other citrus-flavored candies.
