Ingredients

  • 3
    large oranges
    I used blood, navel, and minneola
  • 1/4
    cup granulated brown sugar
    plus 2 tbsp
  • 1/4
    cup water

Instructions

1
Peel all the oranges and add peels to a bowl with the sugar and smash down on them like they're personally responsible for the last 2 pandemic years being a total bust. Do this every few hours and let the peels macerate for at least 4 hrs, up to 24 hrs.
2
Juice the peeled oranges. Bottle the juice and refrigerate.
3
When you're happy with the level of maceration of the peels, strain them to obtain that beautiful aromatic citric oil.
4
Add peels, 1/4 cup orange juice, & water to a cookpot and simmer on medium heat for 10 minutes. Strain and let it cool.
5
Mix the oleo saccharine with the strained syrup, shake well, and refrigerate for up to a month. Use in whatever you like (but cocktails are my best bet).
