  3. Soak the peel in water overnight.
  4. The next day, boil the peel with enough water.
  5. Remove from fire when the natural green color of the fruit has set.
  6. Soak the peel again in water for three days, changing the water regularly.
  7. Boil the peel in water three to four times.
  8. Drain off the water.
  9. Cook the peel in syrup (two parts sugar and one part water) for 15 minutes.
  10. Soak overnight.
  11. Boil it in the same syrup until it begins to thicken. Drain syrup.
