  • 6 cups blood orange peels
  • 1 cup white sugar (If vegan, check to ensure that the sugar is vegan.)


  • Toss the peels and sugar together in a medium-sized bowl. Let sit on the counter, stirring occasionally, for about 4 hours, or up to about 8 hours. Using a fine sieve, strain out the peels, reserving the syrup. Makes a scant 1/2 cup of syrup.



This will keep in the fridge for at least a week, if not longer.
