Candied Fruit

An unexpected gift of three boxes of canning jars and lids led me to create candied oranges and limes to decorate the kitchen for the Candlelight Tour of Homes.

I simply sliced the oranges into even quarter-inch slices, boiled them in sugar water for ten minutes and then layered them in the jars with a generous cap of sugar and the syrup.  I continued to turn the jars for the even until the sugar melted and continued to preserve the fruit!
