Wait until late November or early December, when you see lovely big oranges in the shops, before making this preserved fruit.
Once you have made your own peel, you’ll never want to go back to using the ready-made variety.
Homemade peel keeps well for several months in the fridge and can be used for decorating cakes, biscuits and desserts, as well as for making this fabulous festive snack.
6 large unwaxed oranges
150g granulated sugar
