Put about 4 or 6 pieces of peel in cold water with 1 Tbsp. salt. Boil about 10 minutes. Wash with cold water and clean away all the soft pulp. Put the peel in the pot again with cold water and salt and allow to boil again. Wash and put to boil in fresh unsalted water a couple of times. It should be soft by this time and ready to put in the syrup.


2 cups sugar to 1-cup water

Boil the rind slowly in the syrup for about 4 hours. In this time it should soak up nearly all of the syrup. If there is any syrup left it can be used again.
