Great! I ended up using more syrup mixture as another reviewer suggested - and I think it was a good idea, these would be hard to cook and stir in the original amount provided. One of my orange peels was very pithy, so I left those quarters in the syrup longer, probably 15-20 minutes until the pith was more translucent. I was able to use these on a cake by evening, but - as another reviewer noted - they were not fully dry until the next afternoon, so give them at least 24 hours before oyu plan on giving as gifts or packaging to store. The result is very tender, almost 'melty,' no hint of tough-orange-peeliness. While time consuming, they don't require much work - you can easily make this while you are doing other things. Thanks for the recipe!
