Oranges in Grand Marnier

This is one of the gifts that I always give my friends at Christmas time. I put orange slices, Grand Marnier and sugar into a pint jar, seal it with the lid and then I top the lid with a piece of black and cream toile or deep red and cream toile. To finish I tie a piece of wide grosgrain ribbon around the jar lid. The toile should hang down below the ribbon about an inch. Tie on a gift card that tells what the gift is and directions for storing the oranges and you are all set.

The color of the oranges with the toile is just gorgeous, but use whatever material you are comfortable with. Your gift and kindness will be greatly appreciated.

For each jar, you will need:
 2 cups orange sections (see below for cutting oranges)
 2 teaspoons sugar
 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier

Mix together and place in a pint jar. Seal and follow directions above. Keep refrigerated.

Peeling oranges: To peel oranges, slice a piece off the top and bottom. Then take a small sharp knife and cut down toward the bottom of the orange taking off the white pith with the peel. Now cut between the sections to get an orange slice without the membrane.
