Can I save the simple sugar left over from making the candied orange peel recipe on F52 (I included the suggested vanilla bean).

By all means. The flavor should be lovely. Nothing lasts forever, though; it will eventually mold in the refrigerator, so plan to use it up within a couple of weeks.

I know there are always variables, but in the back of my frig I have syrup from last yr, and it hasn't gone mouldy.(Boy, when you candy a whole box of clementine peel, you end up with a lot of syrup!! Maybe I should gift it to a fav bartender?!)

I always do. And my wife make delicious cocktails with it. Orange simple syrup goes a long way.

Keep in the frig or frzr; i have had it go moldy at room temp.Can also be used in tea, coffee, hot choc, and for brushing on cakes before frosting; or for making another batch of candied citrus peel.

I always save it. It's great in cocktails in place of plain simple syrup.

I would. Nothing raw (like egg whites) was used. It would be such a waste of sugar that can be used in other things.
