Homemade Mixed Peel Recipe
Mixed peel is just candied lemon Rind and Orange Rind, its very simple to make your own homemade mixed peel and tastes even better than shop bought.
1 1/2 cups sugar
The Mixed Peel will last for a couple of weeks in the fridge so don’t make to much at one time.
You can use which ever citrus fruits you like or example try adding in Grapefruit.
You want to peel your fruit leaving some of the pith (white part) if you like a more bitter taste leave more of the pith. Now cut your peel into smalls pieces or leave them whole if you prefer. For my mincemeat recipe I prefer them fairly small.
Now place your prepared fruit into a sauce pan and cover with water, bring to a boil and allow to simmer for approx 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain the water off. You want repeat this step another 2 times. Don’t drain the water on the last time, but add in 1 1/2 cup of sugar, stir well and let it simmer for a while until the peels turn translucent. This may take any time between 30mins to an hour or more so don’t worry if it takes a little time.
Once ready and to your liking store in a sterile air tight jar in the fridge or use immediately.
