My sweet craving since my last post seems to be continuing......
Orangettes are strips of candied orange peel dipped in dark chocolate.This is a great recipe and makes your house smells good too.They can be tedious to make but I can assure you that the hard work does pay off; in a very sweet and fruitful way.....
4 cups water for sugar syrup
250gms dark chocolate
Using a medium size pot, place the peels in boiling water and blanch them for a few minutes. Rinse the peels, and repeat this process a second time (it's best to use cold water again for the second time to repeat the process). This is done to remove the bitterness of the peels.
Store and refrigerate orangettes in an airtight container or pack them up to gift your loved ones. This recipe serves about 30-40 orangettes.
This recipe is adapted from here.
My tastebuds: I loved them! Even now I'm biting into one while writing this post.
