Wrapping it Up
The orange slices must be kept perfectly dry, or they will get very sticky. Four-inch round tins with screw tops are ideal airtight containers. Some versions of these little tins even have “windows” in the center of the lid that show off the pretty slices inside. Tins of this type are available at kitchen shops, home stores, and office-supply stores. Line the containers with parchment paper or waxed tissue paper and stack the orange slices inside. Tie the tin up with a tiny silken ribbon and attach a pretty gift tag with serving suggestions.
