Candied Oranges: Fruit Candy Made with Real Fruit
These were really fun to make, and they taste really good, too!
The White House Cook Book by Fanny Gillette, 1887
Candied orange is a great delicacy, which is easily made: Peel and quarter the oranges; make a syrup in the proportion of one pound of sugar to one pint of water; let it boil until it will harden in water; then take it from the fire and dip the quarters of orange in the syrup; let them drain on a fine sieve placed over a platter, so that the syrup will not be wasted; let them drain this until cool, when the sugar will crystallize. These are nice served with the last course of dinner. Any fruit the same.
[*Be careful when working with hot sugar!]
