National Candied Orange Peel Day is celebrated on May 04, 2017. Candied orange peels are boiled and sliced orange peels, which are candied with sugar. Very delicious! Take part of this day by trying a recipe for candied orange peels. Most often they are used for certain pastries like fruitcakes. But of course you can also eat them right away if you like the real sweet taste.
They have a strong own taste and can therefore easily be used to flavor other foods. Graters of candied orange peel can sweeten cakes and cookies without knowing that they are in it. Apart from that they are also a neat and well smelling decoration for the living room. It is also possible to candy other peels like for example those of grapefruits.
