1/2 tbsp finely grated orange zest (you can get this from one orange)
1 cup orange sections (equivalent to one large orange)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup brandy
In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine orange zest, orange sections, and both sugars. Pour brandy over top. Do not stir . Cover. Let stand at room temperature for 5 weeks. Strain and pour into decanter. Makes 2 1/3 cups.
Note: within hours, the orange segements will rise to the top. You don't need to worry about them going bad as the brandy preserves them.
In one glance, everything you need
In a glance, how everything will look once the brandy has been added. Any sugar above the top will settle on its own.
