Oven-drying orange slices gives them a longer shelf life, which is ideal for gift-giving. For a sweet homespun touch, hand-write the recipe on an old-fashioned recipe card.
Serves 10 (serving size: 1/2 cup)
1. Preheat oven to 200°.
2. Arrange orange slices on a wire rack coated with cooking spray; place rack on a baking sheet. Bake at 200° for 3 hours or until dried.
3. Combine peppercorns and next 5 ingredients on a double layer of cheesecloth. Gather edges of cheesecloth together; tie securely.
4. Combine orange slices, spice sachet, sugar, orange juice, and wine in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Heat just to a simmer (do not boil). Reduce heat to low, and simmer 30 minutes. Discard sachet.
