Cut the top and bottom off each orange.
Using a vegetable peeler, peel off pieces of the skin, cutting from top to bottom. Slice peels into 1/4-inch strips or leave in natural shaped pieces.
Place peels in a sauce pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute.
Drain and repeat two more times with fresh water.
Mix 4 cups of the sugar with 3 cups cold water. Bring to a boil.
Add orange peels and turn heat down to a simmer. Simmer orange peels for 1 hour over low heat. Remove from liquid.
