Suicidal glory is the luxury of the irresponsible.
We're not giving up. We're waiting for a better opportunity to win.

Code Orange Update
CANDIED ORANGE PEEL

1 Quart (1/4-inch wide) orange
Strips (about 15 oranges)
1/2 ts Salt
2 c Sugar
1 c Water
Sugar

Place orange peel in water to cover in a Dutch oven; add salt. Bring to a boil, and boil 20 minutes. Drain. Repeat boiling procedure twice without salt, and set orange peel aside.Combine 2 cups sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil and cook, stirring often, until syrup spins a thread, about 7 minutes (234 degrees). Add orange peel; simmer 30 minutes, stirring often. Drain orange peel well.  Discard syrup.Roll peel, a few pieces at a time, in sugar. Arrange in a single layer on wire racks; let dry 4 to 5 hours. Store in an airtight container.
Yield: about 1 pound.

'I've  got about  1½ quarts of that orange wine .. but it has taken on somewhat of a bitter taste.  I have a lot of that orange infused sugar syrup left, so maybe I'll mix it all together. Because I'm not enthusiastic about it however, I know in the long run it's all going down the drain.  The Orange peels though ... holy crap, to die for.  Actually, they taste  like those soft orange candy slices they sell -- and are just as good [diabetic coma] for you.. 

Thanks to everyone who sent me advice, all of it good, but all of it requiring more effort than I'm willing to spend.

You can do this with grapefruit peel as well and it has a rather pleasant tartness to it that differentiates it from the orange peel.
My momma used to make grapefruit peel candy every Christmas. Dee-lish.

Have you considered dipping half of each strip in dark chocolate?

Just a thought...

You can make candied ginger the same way. I pour the leftover ginger syrup over toasted walnuts and serve them with ice cream or hot oatmeal for breakfast.

I usually take the left over juice...add a substantial amount of vodka...and add a half bag of fresh cranberries. I keep it about a month, shaking it now and then...Results are one Heck of a good addition to a cuppa hot tea.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
