I would like to make candied orange slices

I can do orange peels successfully but I'd like the glossy whole or half slices of confisserie. I have followed all the recipes I can find none of them result in the attractive, glossy, stable, dry finish that makes it possible to chocolate dip them and serve them.

I believe I need a recipe with specific instructions for the temperature of the sugar syrup and I've been unable to find that.

Thanks in advance.

Lorraine, my only thought is that corn syrup may be required. I don't know if your recipes have had that ingredient.

Thank you for that thought but I've mastered candied peels.

I'm trying to do whole slices with the fruit AND I would like the glaze to be shiny and dry enough to be suitable for dipping in chocolate rather than rolled in sugar.

Oh I'm sorry, I read too quickly. I'll keep looking to see if I can find anything for you!
