I am confused.  The pictures show some spirals of orange peel being 
removed from oranges.  Is that what you candied?  If so, what prompted 
you to remove the peel like that rather than removing all the peel from 
the orange?

You had also quoted from a recipe that Master Eduardo uses and what came 
across in the digest was:

"...the water from the first two boilings for orangewater to wash the 
hands with). The peels are then boiled in simple syrup starting with ? 
cup water, ? cup sugar, for every 1 cup boiled peels."

What are the amounts that the digest translates as "?"?  Thanks!
