- a variety of organic citrus fruits
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups organic granulated sugar plus more for rolling
- Also needed: heavy bottom skillet, colander, baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Peel the citrus and slice into strips.
Place all of the citrus in a large, flat-bottom pan. Add cold water until they are floating. Bring the pan to a boil. Drain. Add cold water until they are floating and bring to a boil again. Drain. Repeat a third time.
Then create a simple syrup by bringing the water and sugar to a simmer and cooking till the syrup thickens. Place the citrus and simple syrup in the flat-bottom pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the citrus is translucent and the syrup is thickened and sticking to the fruit. Ours took about 90 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the citrus to a bowl full of granulated sugar. Roll the citrus in the sugar. Lay out on a parchment-lined cutting board and leave to dry.
You'll be seeing these in our panettone. Stay tuned...I actually tried a new recipe and that will be our standard moving forward. It was so tasty!
