Orange, lemon, lime, or grapefruit peel can be candied to make a deliciously fresh, zesty treat. Even ginger can be candied or crystallized. The peel is boiled in sugar syrup until preserved in sugar crystals. Serve as a sweet finish to a meal; dip into melted semisweet chocolate (preferably tempered), let set, then pack as a gift; garnish recipes; or finely chop and stir into any batter or dough.
