This is good. A simple dessert or with breakfast. This would probably be good with Balkan (thick) yogurt dolloped on top. Made for NA*ME Tag!


  1. Cut thin slivers of peel from 1 orange. Don't cut into white membrane.
  2. Cover peel with boiling water; let stand 5 minutes. Drain.
  3. Heat orange peel, water and sugar to boiling; simmer uncovered until slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool.
  4. Cut oranges into slices.
  5. Pour syrup over slices; cover and refrigerate.
  6. Garnish with sprig of mint if desired.
