Candied Orange Slices
Fantastic on their own as a little sweet treat but candied oranges can be used in so many ways- decorate cakes, add a punch of flavor and texture to cookies, garnish drinks, toss them in a salad. You can't go wrong.
In a large saucepan
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
On the sidelines
2 or 3 oranges, sliced roughly 1/4 inch thick
Sparkling sugar, optional
In the large saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a very light boil over medium-low heat.
Add the orange slices and cook for about 30 minutes or so turning them a few times throughout the cooking time.
Remove and let cool on a cooling rack. If you like, decorate with sparkling sugar for added texture and sweetness.
