Candied Blood Oranges
Makes 11 to 13 slices
  • 1 small blood orange (126 grams), cut crosswise into ⅛-inch-thick slices
  • 2 cups (400 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 cups (480 grams) water
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine orange slices and cold water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Drain oranges and repeat process once.
  2. In a large skillet, bring sugar and 2 cups (480 grams) water to a boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add orange slices in a single layer; simmer, turning once, until white pith is somewhat translucent and tender, 40 to 45 minutes.
