I recently decided to cook something that has not previously done, and my eye fell on the watermelon, and it is on its crust, of which make candied fruit. At left standing and cooking took me two days and 3 days, I was drying them. I must say that when I took candied syrup and tried them, I was very upset, because they had a taste of a very particular and not very pleasant. In the recipe for which I am ready, citric acid peel or not, but to «save» ready candied, I sprinkle them with lemon zest and vanilla sugar. Then I dry them in the oven and then finally dried on the balcony for 3 days, occasionally stirring and separating them from each other. When I tried dried candied fruit, I was very pleasantly surprised, because the specific and unusual taste was not the cloying, softened and became enjoyable. Say what candied watermelon taste complicated, can not make them with nothing to compare what they are — something special. As a result, the result of his experiment, and I’m happy with my family :). By the way, a wasp that flew on the apple strudel, today arrived in the candied fruit, while I photographed them on the balcony, and even had time to eat a little, until I looked through photos on the computer :). From 1 kg of watermelon peels I got 950 grams of candied fruits. These can be cooked candied melon of crusts, and they should be stored in a glass jar or cardboard box. Watermelon is desirable to use from his garden as in the purchase may contain large amounts of concentrates.
