I simmered it briefly in water to remove the sweetener. Was not as sweet as the usual neon candied peel to start with. I had extra after making fruitcake and have been nibbling on it. So good. Think I will buy more just for nibbling—nothing like it.
The strips in the package look fine, have not tried them yet. I will use them for my special German Christmas cookies.
These strips are wonderfully tasty, nice proportion. We actually use these in Manhattan's and they are fabulous. We also use the candied sliced orange peels, but if you prefer a less sweet option this is it!
Agrimontana Candied Orange Peels, along with their other candied fruit peels, are the best available. They are used by all the best bakeries and bakers, in Europe and the U.S. These are the real deal. They are imported from Italy. Give them a try. I won't use any others.
Really the only way to enjoy decent candied orange peel is to make it yourself, it isn’t difficult and the result is infinitely better than anything you can buy. I had expected that Market hall would have least used organic oranges since the peel has the most chemical residue.
