DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the oranges and thinly slice off the top and bottom.
  • Put them in a pan with enough water to cover them and boil for 1 hour.
  • Let them cool and then weigh them. Weigh out as much sugar.
  • Cut in half horizontally and then cut the halves in half vertically.
  • Cut the quarters into thin slices – 1/2" approximately.
  • Empty the water from the pan and put the oranges in the pan.
  • Add the sugar.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer until it becomes a syrup – not too thick. This should be about 30 minutes.
  • Put the hot sweet into hot sterilized jars and keep on counter until cooled. Store in refrigerator.
