- 3 thick-skinned organic navel oranges
- 2 1/4 cups sugar, plus extra for rolling
- 3/4 cups water
Take a sharp knife and cut off the top and bottom of each orange. Score them and peel off the skin into quarters.
Use the fruit of the orange in other recipes. Cut the peel into strips 1/8 to 1/4 inch wide. Put in a saucepan and cover with water.
Bring to a boil then pour off the water. Repeat this process a couple of times. Remove the white pith from the orange peel.
Combine the sugar with the water and put the softened peels and the sugar syrup into a crockpot on high heat.
Cook until the peels are translucent. Drain the peels. When they are still moist roll them in sugar.
You can use the orange flavored syrup in other recipes.
