Any way to keep candied orange peel from melting?

  • 1

This is so good to make at Christmas. But mine so quickly loses its crystals and turns wet. Is there any way to keep it dry and crystalline for a week or two?

Thanks.

  1. Are you making it yourself? You might need to cook the syrup down more so there is a higher concentration of sugar and less water. If the candy is too wet and you roll it in sugar the sugar will dissolve. If you let it dry overnight on a wire rack in a cool dry area that should help too.
