Candied Orange Slices
Makes 13
  • 2 small (2-inch diameter) navel oranges, cut crosswise into 13 (⅛-inch-thick) slices
  • 3 cups granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 cups water
  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and set a wire rack over parchment.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine orange slices and enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; drain oranges. Repeat process once.
  3. In a large skillet, bring 2 cups sugar and 2 cups water to a boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add orange slices in a single layer and simmer, turning slices once halfway, until white pith is somewhat translucent and tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Reserve syrup for another use.
  4. Transfer orange slices to prepared rack; let dry overnight.
  5. Before using, coat slices in remaining 1 cup sugar.
