Candied Orange Peel

Delish and very pretty plain or dipped half-way in tempered chocolate, also to use in a lot of different confections. I think the addition of orange liqueur to the process makes this recipe the best I've ever tasted. My daughter helps sugar them...with an eagle eye out for any broken ones that aren't fit for the gift tins! This is adapted from a recipe in one of my cookbooks entitled 'Truffles, Candies, and Confections' by Carole Bloom. It's rather time consuming, but makes enough for several gift baskets. Remember, you can use lemon peels with a lemon liqueur, which is fabulous! And grapefruit works also!
