YUM! Candied Orange Peel

I've recently discovered how easy it is to make these delicious treats. Using firm oranges with thick skin, peel the skin off in segments, and boil to soften. Then use a pair of scissors to snip into strips and cook in a sugar syrup til glassy. Lastly, sprinkle with caster sugar and set out to dry. Candied orange peels keep for ages in a sealed jar, and for extra yumminess can be dipped in dark chocolate. They provide a good burst of sugary energy to a weary walker. I ate these while looking down on Hout Bay from up top Kaptein's Peak.
