candied orange/lemon slices

Take an orange, slice it in half thru the ends (lengthwise) and lay the cut side down. Then take a very sharp knife (I have a Kyocera Ceramic paring knife which does a great job with this) and cut 1/4" slices. Set these aside.

In a large, heavy skillet, bring 1.5 cups water and 1/2 cup of granulated white sugar to a boil... then add the orange slices

Let it boil for about 5-10 minutes, turning once or twice, then reduce the heat to medium and let it continue cooking for about 30 minutes turning occasionally.

The liquid will thicken and become a syrup. Reduce the heat until the oranges are at a low simmer... continue cooking and occasionally turning until the syrup is thick and the oranges are translucent but still in tact.

Remove from heat but let the orange slices remain in the pan as they cool for about 10 minutes... then remove to a sheet of wax paper to cool completely.

The syrup remaining in the pan can be saved and used in other dishes... great fresh orange flavor :)
