I made this three times before getting it right. Will comment to help others not make my mistakes! #1: Didn't want to boil with parchment paper so I covered the pot with a lid. Turns out the water needs to boil off. Result: orange marmalade. #2 The fruit of the orange slices dissolved during cooking and I was left with candied peel, but no fruit. Lesson: Cut the slices thicker than the recipe says. #3 Half of mine looked pretty, half looked terrible. Lesson: Make a practice batch! VERY TASTY!!
