INGREDIENTS: 8 Oranges
Water 1 c Boiling water
4 c Sugar
Makes about 3-4 lbs of candy. (TIP): Collect the orange halves over a period of time and refrigerate them in a plastic bag until you have enough to prepare candied peel. You may candy *whole* orange halves, if you wish. Just boile them without cutting them into strips. When cooled, they make lovely containers for candies and nuts, or holiday desserts. Wash the oranges. Cut into halves and squeeze out the juice. Use the juice for some other purpose, of course. Place the oranges into a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Place over high heat and heat to a boil. Add cold water to cover again. Heat to a boil and drain. Repeat this process five times in all. Drain well and scoop out the pulp. Cut the oranges into 1/4 inch wide strips. Combine 1 cup of boiling water with 2 cups of the sugar. Heat until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the orange strips. Place over medium heat and boil for about 30 minutes, until all the liquid is evaporated. Watch carefully so the peels don't scorch. Cool. Roll the strips in the remaining 2 cups of sugar. Place on waxed paper to dry. Package and store in airtight containers.
