4 oranges, thin skinned, seedless variety
1 cup sugar cup orange juice
2 TBS butter
Preheat oven to 400
Place whole orange in saucepan and cover with cold water.
Bring to a boil, reduce and simmer for 30 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, remove oranges from the water and set them on a plate to cool.
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and orange juice. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and cook for about 5 minutes, until a syrup forms.
Halve the oranges, and trim the bottoms so they will sit evenly in an oven-proof dish.
Dot with butter.
Pour the syrup over the oranges and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
Serve warm or room temperature.
