Question re orange bread made with orange peel

laredo | Nov 21, 2007 01:39 PM

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.
