Candied oranges are delicious on their own or with other desserts, such as on top of carrot cake.
Candied Orange Slices
From David Lebowitz
1 orange, washed well
- 2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
- Cut the orange into 1/4-inch slices. Put the slices in a nonreactive saucepan, add enough water to cover them well, and bring to a simmer.
- Blanche for 10 minutes, then drain well. The rinds should be mostly translucent at this point.
- Put orange slices back in the saucepan and add 2/3 cup sugar and 2/3 cup water.
- Cook orange slices at a simmer for about 10 minutes, or until they are tender and translucent.
