Wash the fruit in lukewarm water. Cut the peel into long, thin strips, avoiding the bitter white pith. Now cut the strips into thin shreds.
Fill a saucepan with water, add the peel and bring to the boil. Boil for about 5 minutes and then drain the water. Repeat once more.
Bring sugar, water and syrup to a boil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add the peel and simmer on a low heat for about 15 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow it to cool. Lift the pieces of peel and roll them in sugar to cover them with sugar.
Use the leftover liquid from the fruit peel for drinks or sprinkle over desserts.
