Pomerantzen III (Candied Citrus Peel) (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: The New International Goodwill Recipe Book
Yield: Varies

5 grapefruit or oranges
5 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons icing sugar (very finely refined sugar usually used for icing)

Carefully peel skin off fruit which has been cut in quarters. Cover skins with water and cook until soft.

Cool, and cut off the thin yellow rind. Add sugar, water, and orange juice and cook for about 30 minutes or until the sugar thickens.

Place oranges on wet board. Mix icing sugar with the thickened sugar. Beat up well and pour mixture over the slices. Allow to cool overnight.
