How to make candied citrus peelsCutting the Fruit

To prepare the peels, cut the fruit in quarters. Cut away the fruit and use a sharp knife to scrape off as much of the white pith as possible. More pith can remain on sweeter fruit (it absorbs the syrup well and provides a nice color and texture contrast); for tarter fruit, get as much off as possible without breaking through the fruit skin. Save the fruit pulp to eat later.
