Sweet orange peels


  • Oranges 6 - 7 items with tough peels
  • Sugar 1 kg
  • Water 800 ml
  • Lemon 2 tablespoons of the juice
  • Cloves 4 -5 items


Wash the oranges,grate them slightly(not much so as not to reach the white part),carve and peel them.Cut the peels into stripes,roll them and using a needle and thread tie and hold them firmly,uniting all the rolls together.Line them ,so tightly as you tied them with the thread,in a pan with water just to cover them and boil for 5 minutes.Throw away the water and boil them again in fresh water for more 5 minutes and then throw the water away again.Repeat the same procedure 3-4 times in order not to taste bitter.In a pan add 800 ml water and the sugar,and the bolied peels draining the remaining liquids of them using your hand and bring to a boil.Reduce the heat,add the cloves and boil them for about 40-45 minutes,until thickened(depending on how thick you want to be).In the last 5 minutes of boiling add the lemon juice and continue boiling for more 5 minutes.Remove the thread you tied them by pulling it and fill glass jars with the sweet.Close the top and turn them upside down.Let it cool and it is ready to enjoy it.
