- 3 large table oranges
- 300 ml Water
- 600 gram sugar
We wash the oranges well, better with a little brush because since they have that rough skin sometimes the sulfates adhere to them in a difficult way to treat. I wash them with hot water. If you use organic oranges, cleaning can be more superficial. The ideal is to make them over low heat and cook more or less about 60 minutesYou have to watch, when they are tender and a thick syrup has formed, you can remove them. The first 20 minutes it is better to cover the pot or pan, then remove the lid and let the syrup thicken and evaporate.
For cooking I use a short pan or a frying pan, (it is better that they remain as extended as possible), add the water and sugar and light the heat so that the syrup forms.
Meanwhile and with a sharp knife, we proceed to cut thin slices of oranges and carefully place them in the pan
