Nature’s Stained-Glass Candy

How beautiful are these candies?  When you thinly slice a blood orange, sprinkle with sugar and spice, and then bake low and slow, the result is a gorgeous sweet candy reminiscent of stained glass!  Gobble up for a sweet afternoon snack, or gift wrap and give as a present to someone special!


3 blood oranges

1 tablespoon brown sugar, lightly packed


2 teaspoons cinnamon


Preheat oven to 200˚ F.

Line baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray.

Slice blood oranges as thinly as possible, with the rind on.  Hint: as you continue to slice very thinly, the blood orange will become more and more difficult to slice.  Simply throw these extra pieces into a pitcher with water and keep on hand for hydration! Infused water is much more fun than drinking plain water ;)

Lay slices flat onto baking sheet.

Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and sprinkle each slice (mostly the rind) with the mixture.

Bake low and slow for 3 hours.

The finished product: a gorgeous citrus candy that looks like stained-glass!
