I used this serious eats recipe to make orangettes. After removing the oranges from the syrup in the end I further reduced it in order not to waste it. After tasting I though it could do with a bit more orange flavour and wondered:
- Could I just squeeze the peeled oranges and use their juice instead of part or all the water in the syrup to make the leftover syrup taste stronger of orange?
- Would this affect the Orangettes? How?
I'd also be interested in suggestions as to how I can use my syrup.
