[Sca-cooks] Candied fruits--oranges and lemons

So our 12th Night this year is an Elizabethan theme. We have a number of 
people coming in from out of town (and staying with us) and I thought I'd 
be nice and provide lunch for all of us instead of relying on the site 
lunch or going out. And, being me, ideally I would like it to be 
documentable. So I am going to make candied lemon and orange peels (and a 
bunch of other stuff, and an A&S entry).

My questions (after perusing carefully the relevant bits of the 
Flori-thingy) are: can one use Clementines (yes, I know they aren't 
period) or is the peel too thin? I was thinking that I might experiment 
with making preserved oranges with them. Also, can one do the same thing 
with lemons successfully?

Many thanks,

Margaret FitzWilliam
