Glaceed Orange

As you know we went to Belgium again a couple of weeks ago and ate lots of great food again. Each morning we went to the pastry shop, where they also served fresh bread and Jambon des Ardennes (Ardenner Ham) for breakfast. 
In the display were not only delicious bread rolls, croissants and custard buns of all sorts, but also bonbons and beautiful cakes. My eye fell on the glaceed oranges with chocolate and I resolved to make them when we were back home.
I am back home for quite some time now, so the time has come.

What you need:
-  2 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 oranges
- 200 grams of chocolate (I used milk chocolate)

What you do:

Put sugar and water in a pan and cook until boiling. Cut the oranges in slices and cut the slices in half, so they look like half moons. Add them to the boiling water and let simmer for about one hour and a half.

Take the orange slices out of the pan and let them dry for about five hours on a wire rack with a baking sheet underneath.

Melt the chocolate au bain marie and dip the orange slices half in the molten chocolate.

They're best eaten fresh, but you can store them refrigerated for about three weeks.

Another yum thing to feast on while we were in Belgium, was Rhubarb Crumble. Made that one, too. For this crumble I used the recipe I always use for making crumbles. You can find it here.


Rhubarb always reminds me of my grandmother. She died a couple of years ago and I think a lot about her. One way to honor her is to cook with rhubarb.

    1. Yes, you can eat the rind, too. Because of the long simmering in sugar water, they become sweet.
