Starting with cold water, bring the peels to a boil three times. Then, weigh the orange peels. In a small saucepan, add the same weight of water and half the weight of sugar together with the boiled orange peels. When the peels with the syrup have started boiling, place them in a vacuum-packed bag and leave them overnight to dry at 70°C. The next day, place them on a perforated pan and bake in a steam oven at 70°C for 30 minutes. Cut them into cubes for the dessert.

Melt the sugar on medium heat until it becomes an amber colour, then slowly add the cream that has been previously heated. Add butter and salt, then mix until a smooth and uniform caramel has been obtained. In another saucepan, heat milk and cream and, at the same time, mix the egg yolks and sugar together. When the milk and cream have started boiling, add the caramel carefully melting it. Then, add the egg yolk and sugar mixture to the caramel mixture, placing it back on the heat and cooking it until it reaches 85°C, taking care to continue to mix it. Transfer the mix to a gelato machine and serve frozen.
