Candied Citrus Recipe

Decorating is made easy when cranberries and tangerines dress up a simply frosted cake. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Cook: 30 min. + standing YIELD:3 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 10 to 12 large tangerine or medium orange slices

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, combine sugar and water; bring to a boil. Add tangerine slices; reduce heat to medium. Cook until slices are translucent, about 20 minutes, turning occasionally. Reduce heat; simmer until slices are tender but still intact, about 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Using a slotted spoon or tongs, remove slices to a wire rack or parchment paper-lined baking pan. Let stand at room temperature overnight to dry. (Save syrup for another use.) If desired, cut slices in half; use to decorate a cake, pie or other dessert. Yield: 10 to 12 tangerine slices.
