Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 blood or navel oranges (peel and pith removed), quartered lengthwise, thinly sliced, and seeded (2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Coarse salt

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine orange zest and slices, sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons water; bring to a boil over high. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until oranges collapse and liquid is syrupy, 12 to 15 minutes.
