I did the boil, drain and rinse 3 times and used the orange peel only, pith included. I didn't have a candy thermometer and was making these with a serious sinus infection and migraine so to keep it simple I added the orange peel to th syrup just when I saw the sugar disappear. Also, I peeled the fruit as usual, in a spiral. After the last blanch I used a pair of kitchen shears to make the smaller pieces while waiting for the sugar water to be ready. I've not finished yet but so far so good! @Skunkee from 2011: I wonder if you actually changed the water ir just allowed it to cool before bringing it back to a boil. That would just make the peels even MORE bitter!
