Ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 cups candied citron or orange peel
  • 2 cups pine nuts
  • Zest of 4 oranges

Directions

Prepare two cookie sheets lined with waxed paper.

In a 3 quart saucepan, melt sugar and water together until you have a clear liquid. Heat liquid to 240 degrees F and remove pan to a cutting board. Whisk the solution until it cools and begins to turn opaque. Working quickly, add citron and pine nuts and stir through. Replace over heat if too stiff. Using a small soup spoon, drop irregular shapes onto waxed paper on cookie sheet and allow to harden.
