Don’t throw away orange peel. It’s a great snack for those on gluten-free diets.
Ingredients
  Orange peel 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs), divided
Directions

Remove the white pith part from the peel. This white part is bitter. Cut the cleaned peel into strips about 1/4 or 1/2 inch thick.

Place the peels in a large saucepan and add 1 cup cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 40 minutes or until the peels are soft. Next, rinse them with tap water. Drain the strips in a colander.

After that, place 1/2 cup sugar and remaining 1/2 cup of water in a medium-sized heavy-bottomed pan and cook until sugar dissolves. Add peel. Cook 1–2 minutes. Mix well.

Remove from heat and place the peel on a wire rack and allow to dry overnight. After it has completely dried, toss with remaining 1/4 cup sugar and store in an airtight container.

Serve and enjoy.
