I was inspired by Smitten Kitchen's orangettes and decided to try making some of my own:
|Peeling the oranges...|
|Blanching them in boiling water to get rid of the bitterness. |
Do this 3 times. I added cinnamon and
fresh ginger to add a little spice.
|Simmer in simple syrup (1:1 sugar-water ratio) for 1 hour. |
I used vanilla sugar but plain white sugar works too.
Let dry - this can take more than 24 hours
if you live in a humid climate like I do!
Dip in melted dark chocolate, then let
dry...and try not to eat them too quickly! :)
