As you can see, we’re gonna share the experience in making candied orange peel, it’s dry and covered with sugar.
Normally, chocolate will be covered on the candied orange peel. Unfortunately, we haven’t bought any chocolate, not even non temper one.
This is ours’ first time making orange peel without an oven, we dry the orange peels with the microwave. It’s quite a challenging experience, we even burnt the peel for the first time.
So, why were making orange peel with the microwave is challenging?
Firstly, we don’t know the exact temperature in the microwave. If it’s too high, it burnt the peels.
Secondly, the microwave will roast the peels instead of drying them. The surface might caramelize and affect the colour.
Last but not least, the time of drying the orange peels. We really don’t even know the exact time for the drying process. If we’re using an oven, we can set the temperature as low as possible and leave them dry overnight.
How can we overcome all of the problems then?
All we have to do is keep trying until we get the best result. After burning a lot of time, we know the time and how to set the power of the microwave.
So, if you’re interested by the recipe, let’s get started!
Good Eats Candied Orange Peel Recipe
Orange: 1 pc
First of all, we cut the orange peel with a knife and slice them into julienne. Remember we only want the orange peels, other stuff will make the peels sour in taste.
Secondly, we boil the water and salt to make a bath for the orange peels in order to get rid of the bitter taste.
Thirdly, we blanch the peels until the water become yellowish.
Then, we strain the peels and prepare the syrup.
Meanwhile, we put the orange peel into the sauce pan and start the stove to medium heat and let them boil for at least half an hour.
When you see the orange peels become little bit transparent, strain them and leave aside.
Here comes the fun part, set the microwave power to low and microwave the orange peels for 10 seconds intervals.
You should microwave the peels until they’re a little bit dry. Dump them in the sugar and coat them with sweets.
Here you go, the Good Eats Candied Orange Peels!
