Wash all the jars and let them dry perfectly.
Remove the skin from all the oranges and cut them into slices. Arrange all the slices into the jars; remember to sprinkle some tablespoons sugar over every layer. Fill every jar up to 2-3 centimetres from the edge. At this point pour in alcohol very slowly in order to refill all the empty spaces. Close the jars very well and put them in a cool and dark place.
You can eat these oranges after 2-3 months.
This recipe is very easy and the oranges are very tasty. You can serve them after a meal or you can use them, cut into cubes, when you prepare fruit salads.
