Yield: Yields about 1/2 cup
While you can use store-bought candied orange peel in the Chocolate Orange-Ricotta Trifles, making your own candied zest is easy and quick, and—more important—has a fresher flavor. It is a great way to add sweet orange flavor to all kinds of desserts. Try some diced and sprinkled over vanilla ice cream or chocolate mousse, or add some to a fruit salad.
Make Ahead Tips
Candied zest will last for at least 3 months in the fridge.
You can use this recipe for other citrus, too; simply replace the oranges with 1 large grapefruit or 6 lemons or limes.
