Paris has many hidden treasures.

One of them is La Pagode located in the 7th arondissement. It was on my original list of places to visit back in April but I never made it there.

Today’s rainy weather was perfect for a long walk from my hotel in Montmartre all the way down to Rue de Bablyone (quite a hike!).

Built in 1896, it started out as a ballroom but was transformed into a theater in 1930. It is still in use today as a theater.

I literally dropped my bag when I entered the garden because I was overwhelmed by the emotional pull of the scene laid out before me. I stood there for a while watching the painter paint under the canopy of trees before taking photographs and sitting down for a while to savor the beauty.

What a perfect end to a whirlwind of a trip. I leave Paris early tomorrow morning with so many amazing memories.

Paris has a permanent spot in my heart.

Candied Citrus Peels

With Halloween approaching, I decided to make these candied orange and lemon peels which are traditional sweets in France. They are simple to realize and healthier than other candies as citrus peels have a high concentration of vitamin, antioxidants and boost your immune system.
These healthyish candies are chewy and taste very similar to sour candies which make them the perfect treat for Halloween. One of my favorite way to eat them is to cover them with dark chocolate (if possible unsweetened) as it balances their sweetness. This is also a great way to avoid wasting the peels when using citrus for cooking or baking.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

2 organic or non treated oranges
2 organic or non treated lemons
Sugar (it will be the same weight as the blanched peels)
Water (it will be the same weight as the blanched peels)
Dark chocolate (optional)

Preparation:

1- Because we will be using the peels I highly recommend using organic or non treated citrus so you don’t ingest as much chemicals. Also, I like to brush the citrus under running water before hand. Dry them well and place on a cutting board.

2- You will need to detach the skin of the orange/lemon without getting any fruit or as much as you can on the skin, so I will share a technique to help you. First slice the top and bottom of oranges and lemons. Try to only slice the skin part as much as you can.Then slice each side of the citrus without going too deep so you don’t cut the fruit inside. You can look at the depht of the peel on top so you know how deep you should cut.With a sharp knife go around the edges on top and at the bottom of the citrus. With the blade of your knife detach the peel from the citrus delicately. Do it only around the top and bottom as the rest will detach easily. Once done, detach each quarter of peel delicately. You should have none to almost no citrus on the skins.

3- Flatten the peels and cut the round edges so each skin is a perfect rectangle. Slice the peels not too thick or too thin.

4- Once the peels are sliced you will have to blanch them 3 times. In a pot, add the peels, cover with cold water and let the water boil. When the water is boiling, drain the peels, rinse under cold water and repeat.

5- Weight your blanched peels. For 2 oranges and 2 lemons, I got 275g of peels. Add the peels in a pot and add the same weight of water and sugar. Let the syrup reduce until it is sticky and covering all the peels. Stir very often so the syrup doesn’t caramelized.

6- Place the peels on parchemin paper and separate them as much as possible as they may stick to each other. Let them cool down for a couple minutes.

7- Pour some sugar in a bowl and roll each peel into the sugar. Place on a plate and let them dry. The best is to wait a couple days before eating them but it usually is hard to wait that long! They are even better covered with chocolate and for this I recommend using dark chocolate to balance the sweetness of these candies.
