1 cup orange juice
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp. butter
Wash oranges and place in a large Dutch oven.
Cover with water and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Drain and set aside.
When oranges are cool, peel and cut 1/2" thick slices. Cut each slice in half
and arrange in a lightly greased oblong baking dish.
Combine orange juice, sugar, butter and cornstarch in saucepan.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute.
Pour hot mixture over orange slices. Sprinkle with nutmeg if desired.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until bubbly.
Notes: Roasted oranges were used by early Florida settlers as a remedy for the common cold, and a tea made from orange leaves was similarly used for curing a fever.
