 Candied Fruit Peel (T)

 * 2 cups water
 * 1/2 TBS salt
 * sugar
 1) Place peel, water and salt in a large bowl.  Soak 24 hours.
 2) Drain and rinse peel.
 3) Soak peel in fresh water 20 minutes.  Drain again.
 4) Place in a large pot of fresh, boiling water.  Cook 20 minutes.
 5) When cool, drain and measure peel in a measuring cup.
 6) Place peel and equal amount of sugar in a large pot.  Cook over medium
