Using vegetable peeler, cut strips of rind from orange. Cut lengthwise into thin strips.

In saucepan, bring 1 cup (250 mL) of the sugar and water to boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved; boil for 1 minute.

Add rind; simmer until translucent, about 6 minutes.

With slotted spoon, remove rind, shaking off excess syrup. Immediately toss with remaining sugar, using fork to separate pieces. Let harden on plate. (Make-ahead: Store layered between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.)
