Candied Lemon Peel

 

This post is the first of three that details how to make the classic British mince pie. The candied peel is only one small component but I decided to make it from scratch. I used all of the candied peel in my mince pies but candied peel and fruit can be enjoyed on it’s own or a impressive gift. Before this weekend I don’t think I’ve ever tried candied peel but it was surprisingly pleasant. Sweet, tart and with a little bit of a chew to it.

My sister came down to visit and I wanted to make something fun for us all to have for breakfast on Sunday morning. Kayla used to live in London with me but I started the blog after she moved back to the US so she hasn’t really had many chances to taste my baking.
