Again I am working through my backlog,...

for candying peel I used a version that cooks the peel once in plain water, 
which will be discarded and afterwards  each day again with more sugar for 
about a week. I have the recipe not on this computer and can't remember 
which book I took it from, but I can check. I think Rumpold was also one of 
the books I looked through.

And here is my favorite marmalade recipe OOP:

I love all kinds of citrus fruit marmalade and use the same basic recipe for 
all, adding aromatics as I experiment (last batch out was blood orange with 

my basic recipe is:

560 g Orange cut in thin/thick slices (works best with an bread slicing 
machine, although it is messy and you need a flat bowl to catch all juices)
1 l Water

mix and let stand for 24 hours

cook for 1/2 an Hour

again let stand for 24 hours

weight your stuff and add sugar (and extra pectin if desired and needed, as 
the results will vary between *runny like a compote* and *can be cut with a 
knife* with each batch you make) in what ever version 1:1, 1:2 or 1:3 you 


I like this recipe because the peel is soft and if you really use bitter 
oranges, it will loose the puckering bitterness  (once a year I can get them 
at health food stores when they are in season (usually January). If you only 
have the peels use them to spice up otherwise just cloyingly sweet orange
