Making your own candied citrus peel seems a lot more daunting than it is. In fact, it’s quite simple, and definitely worth the bit of time it takes. I’ve posted a step-by-step guide on making your own Candied Orange Peel here, and now I’m experimenting with other types of citrus peels. The process is basically the same no matter what kind of peel you use, but there are a few changes to be made here and there. So, hop on over to my DIY Candied Orange Peel page, and if you want to make a different kind of candied citrus peel, you can follow the notes on this page so you know what changes to make!
Candied Meyer Lemon Peel
Use 9 Meyer Lemons in place of the 3 oranges used for the Candied Orange Peel.
You may have about 1/2 cup syrup or more left over after you candy the lemon peel, versus only a few tablespoons left over from candying orange peel. It’s okay :)
Let the candied lemon peel dry for about 24 hours. When ready to store, place about 1/8 cup granulated sugar in the container in which you will be storing the peel. Add the peel to the container, cover, and shake to coat the peel with the sugar.
