Candied Orange Slices

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 Oranges
  • Large bowl of ice water
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • Extra granulated sugar, optional


Wash and dry oranges. Sliced into ⅛-inch rounds.
Discard any seeds and ends.
Fill a large bowl with ice water and set aside.
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil and add orange slices.
Boil the orange slices for 1 minute then place in the bowl of ice water until cooled.
Drain on a wire rack.
In a large skillet over medium heat, bring 2 cups sugar and 2 cups water to a low boil.
Heat until sugar dissolves stirring occasionally.
Turn heat to low and place orange slices in the sugar-water mixture in a single layer. (You may need to do this in batches or in two pans.)
Simmer but do not boil the orange slices 45-50 minutes or until rinds are slightly translucent, turning every 15 minutes.
Place orange slices on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely. (This will take a couple of hours or just leave them on the rack overnight).
I sprinkled my slices with extra granulated sugar so they would not be sticky. This is completely optional.
Use immediately or keep orange slices refrigerated in an airtight container until ready to use up to 1 month.
