Oranges in Syrup

Thumbnail of Oranges in Syrup recipe

Score the oranges all over in imitation of some ornamental design representing basket-work, or trellice-work, &c.; and simmer them, very gently in water, until nearly done through. They must then be thrown into cold water, to soak for twenty-four hours, changing their water every three hours; at the end of this time they should be allowed to drain on a sieve for several hours, and then being placed in an earthern pan with sufficient syrup of 28 degrees' strength poured gently upon them. For three successive days, let the syrup be boiled up and skimmed, and when nearly cold, poured back to the oranges; after this the oranges may be put away in jars.
