    I’ve never been a big fan of candied peel either…but the last time I tried it was years ago, so maybe it’s time for another go!

    I can’t wait to try this recipe out. Would love to hear how your panettone turned out and have you considered also trying to make panforte? Had some in Tuscany recently and have been craving it every since.
    Cheers!

    These look and sound incredible- and the grapefruit is a great idea! I bet it’s even better than the oranges. Maybe your former love of sour candies spurred the candied grapefruit appreciation :)

    These look so good! I’ve been meaning to make candied citrus peels for ages–especially because we have both an orange and a lemon tree–so thanks for the kick in the pants!

    I candied a big batch of orange peels this year and dipped them into chocolate. Oh, so yum.

    Yes. CANDY. If I’d had it my way, I would have lived off of Jolly Ranchers, Riesens, and Sour Patch Kids when I was little. (And Airheads! Oh man, did I love those things. Especially the mystery white flavor. Now I have the shudders.) I think the closest I ever came to eating candied fruit were those jellied sugar-covered candies that are supposed to look like citrus slices or something. (I didn’t even like those that much. There was too much softness, not enough toothache-inducing sugar toughness.)

    I made candied orange peels out of curiosity a couple years ago, and I loved them. Especially the ones I dipped in chocolate.

    Hope your panettone turns out delish! (:

    Speaking of Citrus. Meyer lemons are back! Just bought 4 lbs for $6.49 at Costco. Looking forward to bundinos again!

    I started seeing the dentist when I was 3 years old. ‘Nuff said about the candy. :-P

    These are so pretty, Linda! And yeah, I don’t think I would’ve gone near these as a child but now, oh man.

    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

    This looks so good! And they are pretty as well. So festive.

    I wish you Happy Holidays all the way from Finland to the U.S.!

    Oooh- I bet the grapefruit is delicious! I made candied orange peels last year and they were gorgeous in the champagne cocktails I served at New Years!

    Just found these via a blog (can’t recall which one!). I’m excited to try them, but this question has to do with those jars. Can I ask what brand they are and where you picked them up? Cheers !
