Sometimes I think my kitchen is more of a chemistry lab than a kitchen. I love candied oranges, however, they are definitely pricey when you see them and not readily available. So, I thought I would try my hand at making candied oranges. They are the perfect accompaniment to a cheese tray, great to chop and mix in muffins or quick breads, an interesting addition or garnish for cocktails, delicious served with whipped cream mixed with brandy, serve sliced with an after dinner cordial and my latest concoction – chop two candied oranges and mix into one-half gallon of vanilla ice cream and top with chocolate sauce. Below I have highlighted another fantastic Virginia food find I came across Willie Byrd Chocolate Sauce , I heated and topped my candied orange ice cream with this and all I can say is… unbelievably delicious!
