For Wednesday, May 5th, 2011
Renewal Day is an absolutely spectacular day. It's a day of new, and old, beginnings.
Things get old and out of sorts. We lose touch with friends, loved ones, and relationships. For whatever reason, we let it go. Well, whatever it is, today is the day to renew it, rejuvenate it, and bring the spark back into it.
Renewal Day is not limited to renewing relationships and social issues. You can also renew:
Your hair color or style.
Your hardwood floors
The shine on your car.
Your driver's license
A favorite magazine subscription
Bring 3 cups sugar and 3 cups water to boil in medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add peel. Return to boil. Reduce heat; simmer until peel is very soft, about 45 minutes. Drain.
Toss peel and 1 cup sugar on rimmed baking sheet, separating strips. Lift peel from sugar; transfer to sheet of foil. Let stand until coating is dry, 1 to 2 days. DO AHEAD: Wrap and freeze up to 2 months.
