Candied Zucchini Strips
For a colorful embellishment, place these delicate strips on top of our Zucchini Bundt Cake with Orange Glaze.
- 2 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 cups water
- 2 medium zucchini (about 8 ounces each), very thinly sliced lengthwise, preferably on a mandoline
Bring sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add zucchini. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, with a round of parchment placed directly on the surface, until zucchini are translucent, 15 to 20 minutes. Let zucchini cool in syrup.
Arrange zucchini in a single layer on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Let dry for 1 hour. Use immediately.
