  2. Drain. Cover well with fresh water and bring to a boil. Drain. Repeat boiling process three times to remove all bitterness.
  3. Put peels, 1 cup water, and 4 cups sugar into a large pot and bring to a boil. Solution will be very thick. Cook, stirring occasionally, until syrup begins to crystallize, then lay pieces separately on a sheet of aluminum foil to continue the crystallization process.
