Candied Orange Peels With Clove and Cinnamon

2 oranges
½ cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. clove
{+extra cinnamon and sugar for rolling}

Peel 2 oranges and cut the peels into strips.
Boil the orange peels in water for 15 minutes. Change the water 3 times {to get rid of the bitter taste}.
Pour out the last round of bitter water into the sink.Add 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 cup of water to the orange peels and boil slowly for another 15 minutes. Take out the orange peels and place them on a baking rack with wax paper underneath. The excess glaze will drip onto the wax paper for easy clean up. Once the orange peels are cool enough to handle, roll them in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar and place back on the rack until they have hardened.
