DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the oranges into eight sections and remove the pulp from the peel.
  • Using a sharp paring knife, cut away as much of the white pith as possible from the peel.
  • Cut the remaining orange peel in half (or into strips).
  • Place the orange zests and half of 1 of the lemons in a large saucepan. Add water to cover and bring to a boil for 15 seconds. Drain, rinse under cold water, and drain again. Discard the lemon half.
  • Repeat step 4 two more times, each time covering the zests with fresh water and adding another lemon half.
  • Combine the 3 cups water and the sguar in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Add the zests and the remaining lemon half. Bring to a gentle boil and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the Grand Marnier. Leave the zests in the liquid, loosely covered, for at least 12 hours.
  • Remove the zests from the liquid and set them on paper towels to drain. Roll them in the sugar, pressing sugar into the zests.
  • Allow zests to dry slightly before serving.
