Villa Cappelli has recently added handmade candied orange peel to their Italian product line. The oranges are picked from trees in Tartanto, Puglia and candied using an old family recipe. The secrete to Villa Cappelli’s orange peel is that they take a little of the orange rind with the peel; this helps balance the sweetness. After cooking it in a simple syrup for hours, then they dust the orange peel with sugar.
These delicious treats are soft and slightly sticky; each bite provides a burst of citrus that is tangy but sweet in one mouth full. Candied orange peel can not only be eaten straight from the package, it can also be added to dessert recipes to make them over the top, such as brownies, tarts and pound cake.
