Candy-ing blood oranges is super simple. You can candy any citrus for that matter, and it is going to be delicious. You can dip these guys in chocolate, put on top of a cake, garnish your favorite margarita, etc.
Serves: Makes about 16 orange slices
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 35 minutes
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
2 blood oranges, sliced crosswise, 1/4 inch thick
what to do: In a large skillet, combine the water and sugar and bring to a boil. Add the orange slices and cook over moderate heat, turning occasionally, for about 30 minutes (until the oranges are translucent and a thick syrup has formed). Transfer the oranges to a wire rack and immediately place under the broiler on high until caramelized and crispy. Let cool. Save the syrup for another use.
