Citrus Glaze and Candied Zest

  • ACTIVE: 20 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 3 HRS
  • SERVINGS: Makes enough for one 9-inch cake or 12 cupcakes
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 1 organic navel orange, scrubbed
  2. 1 large organic lemon, scrubbed
  3. 1 small organic grapefruit, scrubbed
  4. 2 1/2 cups sugar
  1. Using a sturdy vegetable peeler, remove the zest from the orange, lemon and grapefruit. Cut the zest into fine julienne strips.
  2. Fill a medium saucepan with cold water. Add the zest and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain the zest and rinse under cold water.
  3. Return the zest to the saucepan. Add 1/2 cup of the sugar and 1 cup of cold water and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Simmer over low heat until the glaze is slightly thickened and the zest is softened and translucent, about 20 minutes.
  4. Strain the glaze into a heatproof bowl, pressing on the zest to extract as much glaze as possible. Return 2 tablespoons of the zest to the glaze.
  5. Spread the remaining 2 cups of sugar on a large plate. Scatter the remaining zest over the sugar and toss to coat completely. Scatter the sugared zest on a wax paper-lined plate and let stand until dry to the touch, about 2 hours.
Make Ahead The glaze and candied zest can be stored separately in airtight containers at room temperature for up to 2 days. Reheat the glaze before using. Serve With Citrus-Glazed Yogurt Cake
