candied orange

It has been a quiet evening.  We went and voted.  Ate dinner and watched videos.  I have been avoiding all the election news.  I was tired of it a year ago and I am even more tired of it now.  I am not looking forward to all of the analysis that comes after.

I have a recipe to share that is soooo good.  But there is another bit that you really need to make first.  This is the bit.  Candied orange.  It is really easy.  I did not realize how easy it really was until I did it.  

candied oranges

2 navel oranges or 4 manderin oranges

3 cups of sugar

4 cups of water

Slice the oranges at about 1/4 inch thickness.  In a medium saucepan, mix the sugar and water.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Add the oranges.  Reduce the heat to a very low and simmer for 2 to 3 hours.  I did three.   The oranges are done when the rind is soft.  The easiest way is to test this is to bite into them but they are VERY hot so be careful.  

Remove from heat.  Cover.  Let cool completely.  They can be made 2 weeks ahead of time and stored in their syrup in the refrigerator.
