"Don't Throw Away Your Orange and Lemon Rinds" from the column "A Liberal Table on Small Means" by Mrs. S. T. Rorer. This excerpt is from Ladies' Home Journal, November 1907, Vol XXIV, No 12, page 30.
Another economy is worth practicing and that is the saving of lemon and orange rinds. When you are using a lemon for lemonade it is better if the rind is taken off; you may take it off in strips or you may squeeze the juice and keep the rind in halves; clear out the inside and throw the rinds at once into cold water; bring to a boil, boil for five minutes and drain. Cover with boiling water and boil until tender. Then make a syrup from a pound of sugar and half a pint of water; bring to a boil and skim. Put in the lemon rinds and cook until transparent; then throw them on to a sieve to drain; stir the syrup until it begins to granulate and pour it over. let it harden and dry on the lemon rinds; these are better for fruitcake and mincemeat than the commercial candied lemon rind which you usually buy.Believe it or not, this is only a short excerpt from this article! You probably wondered how much there was to say about lemon rinds. I'm pretty sure Mrs. Rorer was paid by the word.
