Bursting with color and flavor, these oranges are a versatile, easy-to-make treat!
  • 3 cups water
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 2 navel oranges, halved and sliced lengthwise (slices about ¼" thick)
  1. In a large, heavy saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Add orange slices and cook over medium-high heat until transluscent, turning occasionally, for about 25 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 15 minutes more or until syrup is thick and orange slices are soft with a glassy appearance, but still intact.
  3. Use a slotted spoon to remove the oranges from the syrup and transfer to a cooling rack placed over a baking sheet (a wax-paper lined baking sheet also works if you don't have a cooling rack). Allow the oranges to cool and firm up a bit. Candied orange slices can be store up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator. Just layer the slices between pieces of wax paper in a plastic storage container.
