Cover peel with cold water. Bring to boil and cook until tender, pouring
off water and adding fresh cold water several times. Drain. With spoon,
remove white inner portion of peel. With knife or tiny star cookie cutter,
cut a few stars from peel, if desired. With scissors or sharp knife, cut
rest of peel in thin strips. Make syrup by boiling 2 cups sugar with 1 cup
water. Add a little red or green food coloring. (A drop or two of yellow
coloring with red improves the finished color.) Add peel; cook over low
heat until peel has a clear, candied appearance. Remove peel, 2 or 3 pieces
at a time, allowing excess syrup to drain back into saucepan. Roll strips
separately into remaining 1 cup sugar until well coated. Place on rack to
cool. Store in tightly covered container in cool, dry place. Keeps at least
a month.
