How to prepare:

Cut the cleaned oranges with peel in thin slices and remove the pits. Arrange the slices in a wide heat resistant bowl or pan and add water till the slices are exactly covered. Let rest an hour.

Add sugar, vinegar, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Skim foam if necessary. Remove the orange slices with a skimmer from the pan and arrange in cleaned jars. Place slices along the sides of the jars too.

Reduce the vinegar/sugar mixture to jelly: a drop on a cold plate gets jelly-like.

Remove the cinnamon and cloves and fill up the jars with the boiling mixture.

Close the jars with canning cellophane. Label with date and contents.

Preservable for 1 year.

Orange pickles are a great gift.
