Candied Oranges




  1. Whisk the water and sugar in a medium pot and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Whisk occasionally and make sure all sugar has dissolved.
  2. Slice oranges thinly, discarding the edges. Add the oranges to the pot and simmer for at least 1 hour, until the peels are translucent. Make sure the water doesn’t come to a full boil or the oranges will begin to disintegrate.
  3. Carefully remove the oranges with a slotted spoon and place on a wire cooling rack. Set the oranges aside to dry for at least 12 hours.
  4. You can eat the oranges just like this or dip both sides in sugar. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-4 days.
