what do you do with all your candied citrus peel?
I don't make many desserts so usually just eat the candied peels as a treat.
(They are awesomely sweet, fresh, and bitey on a long car trip.)
make that three . . .
I'm thinking about cocktails to make with the syrup left from orange and kumquat peels
