Using a vegetable peeler, remove zest from oranges in 1½- to 2-inch-long pieces. Cut the pieces into very thin strips, about ⅛ inch wide. Cook in a small saucepan of boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain. Bring more water to a boil and cook the orange peel for another 5 minutes. Drain.
Bring sugar and ¼ cup water to a simmer in a small saucepan, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the orange peel, cover and simmer for 3 minutes. Transfer the syrup and peel to a bowl. Cover and chill overnight.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the orange peel to paper towels to drain before using.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate, in the syrup, for up to 2 weeks.
