my precious stash of homemade candied orange peel, made using pierre herme's recipe. not sure if you can see the specks of vanilla bean but this is good stuff coz lotsa spices go into them and the aroma is unsurpassed. after making these i realize the storebought variety is crap, especially the ones found along the baking isle in supermarkets and in baking supplies store.
