Wash oranges, lemons, or grapefruit. Remove peel in 2 sections. Cyt
each section into 1/4 inch strips. Cover with cold water. Heat to

boiling water and simmer until tender. Drain. Divide peel into 3 por-
tions. Prepare a heavy sirup, using 2 cps sugar and 1 cp water.
Color 1 portion of sirup red, 1 portion green, and leave one portion clear.
Add 1/3 of peel to each portion of sirup. There should be sufficient sirup
to cover each portion of peel. Cook slowly until tender. Allow
