Hi Guys,

Does anyone have an alternative supplier of candied orange other than HB (who seem to have lost the plot completely since moving premises! Surprised ).

Preferably non-dextrose, in anything from 1kg to 10kg packs.

Thank you.

Came to the same conclusion last week! I got a huge case of fresh oranges for £10 and now have several kilos of the best ever orange peel waiting to be enrobed!

Snippetts of the process can be seen on our facebook page! http://www.facebook.com/pages/.....316?ref=ts

I'll add updates when they're dried and enrobed, but first tastings reveal a full, rounded orange flavour, without bitterness or acidity and a pleasing firm bite which (IMO) is always missing from the overly soft commercial offerings.

God knows if I can keep it up through Christmas though!!!Wink
