I would like to make a deceased relative's recipe for bread (quick bread) made with orange peel.
It says "Boil orange peel three times and pour off water." Then the instructions say to make a thick syrup with sugar and water. The syrup is then added to the batter.
I am guessing it means to bring to boil with fresh water three times. Would the purpose be to eliminate bitterness?
Thanks for any explanation someone might offer.
