Candied Buddha’s Hand Citron
1 Frieda’s Buddha’s Hand Citron
1 cup sugar
Slice Buddha’s Hand into 1/3-inch wide strips. In a medium pot, bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil until sugar dissolves. Add Buddha’s Hand strips. Simmer until soft and glazed; about 30 minutes. Dry strips on a parchment or wax paper until tacky. Roll in sugar before serving.
Note: Save the sugary syrup leftover after boiling the candy to sweeten your tea! (And a few slices of Buddha’s Hand steeped in the hot liquid will also have a medicinal effect and release a lovely fragrance…)
