    8      Whole         navel oranges
    2      Large         lemon
    3      Cups          water
    1 1/3  Cups          sugar, granulated
    1      Cup           dry while wine
    2 1/2  Tablespoons   dry white wine
    2 1/2  Tablespoons   Grand Marnier
 Remove coloured part of orange and lemon peel with a vegetable peeler
 cutting from top to bottom to obtain about ½"x3 strips. Slice lengthwise
 into very thin julienne. Set lemons aside for another use. Trim tops and
 bottoms from oranges. Cut away any pith. Set oranges on platter.
 Bring water to a boil in medium sauce pan.  Add peel and boil 5 minutes.
 Drain in colander. Transfer to heavy non-aluminum 2-3 qt. sauce pan   Add
 sugar with 1 cup wine.  Place over medium-low heat and cook until sugar
 dissolves swirling pan occasionally.  Increase heat to high and boil until
 syrup becomes medium caramel colour. Remove from heat and stir in liqueur
 with remaining 2½ tbsp. wine.  
 Pour syrup over oranges. Using fork mound peels atop oranges, distributing
 remaining peels in syrup around fruit.  
 For a buffet halve and slice the oranges. Not as dramatic but tastes the
 Serve at room temperature or chilled.
 July12/97 Note: I used the ingredients as above except for the Grand
 Marnier - I used one tiny single serving size bottle. The sauce had a good
 flavour but was too sweet. Next time reduce sugar.
