Last year I made candied orange and lemon peel for the first time. And I never thought that it”d be so easy to make candied citrus peel at home. Besides, these homemade candied citrus peels were so tasty that I tried homemade candied orange slices this year. Candied orange slices are just as easy to make and even more delicious! 😀

Add Orange Slices
Add the orange slices as soon as the sugar is dissolved. Cover with a lid and continue to simmer for about 1 hour. Check often in the last fifteen minutes to prevent the candied orange slices from burning and the syrup from boiling over.
Dry Candied Orange Slices
Remove the orange slices from the syrup with a fork. And transfer them to a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Let the candied orange slices dry for a couple of days at room temperature.
Use the leftover orange syrup to flavor tea, cookies, cakes, lemonade & ice cream.
Store Candied Orange Slices
Store the dried candied orange slices in an airtight glass jar in the fridge.
