Need help with candied peel please

galka | Dec 26, 201104:01 PM

I had a big buddha's hand and tried to make candied peel following a recipe I found online. However, even after boiling in syrup for more than 2 hours, it never hardened after I took it out. I was not sure what I did wrong and now, after two days of drying out on a cookie sheet, it is still wet and does not really harden as it supposed to. Is there anything I can do at this point to save it? I still have the syrup- should I reheat and try and cook it a little longer? How long? The syrup I made was 1:1 water and sugar as the recipe called for,

Thanks in advance!
