Oranges are part of Chinese New Year tradition. The reason behind its importance is quite simple - in Cantonese they're called "chen" which sounds the same as the word for "success". Outside of businesses and in homes you can find small trees full of oranges this time of year. Generally the oranges are not eaten, they're just for decoration but they can be used for some delicious treats, like the one below! Click images to see larger versions...


You will need a bunch of the tiny variety which can be eaten without peeling. Prepare the oranges by washing them carefully and then stick a tooth pick on each one.


Roast peanuts or other nuts and/or seeds.


Crunch the nuts into small bits and pieces. Then heat up sugar (red / brown sugar will be best) on a wok to running... this is used to dip the oranges to cover the surface of the oranges. Somewhat similar than dipping strawberries in chocolade...


Dip the oranges in the melted sugar and then in the nuts! Proceed through all of the oranges one by one...


The result is a delicious sugar-nut coated orange! Yummy! smiley



Enjoy!
