fifty to sixty¼ inch -wide strips
I like candied orange peel because it makes use of something we normally throw away, and also because it tastes so good. You can coat the strips of peel in decorative sugar or dip them in melted chocolate. I like some bite and chewiness to the strips, so after I blanch them, I cut off a layer of pith. For very fine peels, remove all the pith.
