If you can resist munching on all these chewy, sweet citrus bits, you'll find plenty of ways to use them in your kitchen. We like stirring chopped peel into granola or cookie batter, sprinkling it over vanilla ice cream, or dipping the pieces in chocolate. Keep in mind that lime peel does not taste particularly good when candied.
You can save the rinds from citrus fruit you use in a zip-top bag in the refrigerator to use for candied peel.After removing the candied peel, you can reserve the citrus-flavor syrup for drizzling over pancakes, muffins or cakes.
