      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    This recipe takes forward planning!
  1. Top and tail the fruit


  2. Cut the peel with a sharp knife from each piece of fruit then slice the peel into strips.


    The photo is of Orange and Grapefruit!


    Blanch peels at this stage if you like, this will assist in reducing the bitterness of the peel.


  3. Place sugar and water into mixing bowl.

    Heat for 8 mins / 110 degrees /  speed 1



  4. Place peels into TM mixing bowl. 

    Heat for 50 minutes / 110 degrees / 



  5. Strain peels and place on lined baking tray.


    Sprinkle with extra sugar


    Leave peels overnight to dry or use a dehydrator if you are lucky enough to have one.  




  6. Ready to eat once dry.



We served these peels as a treat on the Blood Orange Sorbet at a Thermomix Cooking Class and the guests loved it!

Thanks to recipe community user "Gerrlee" for the original recipe that we have made some small changes too.

    I halved this recipe, as I was only making it to use as a garnish on top of a lemon tart. I made it with orange peels. It was very easy. I think if I was to make it again, I would blanch them first, to take away a little of the bitterness. I have saved the leftover orange-flavoured sugar syrup to use as a topper for pancakes (instead of maple syrup), as I hate wasting anything. Overall, highly recommend. Smile
