Orange you glad I posted this?

If you have leftover oranges or clementines, this bejeweled dessert makes a gorgeous alternative to heavier ones…

Make a spiced syrup by simmering two cups of red wine, a half-cup of sugar, four juniper berries, two cloves, one cinnamon stick, and the zest of an orange for about an hour or until a bit thickened.

Supreme (see my post “The Supreme Grapefruit”) oranges or clementines or cut off rinds and slice across into discs. Arrange on plates or a platter.

When syrup is completely cool, strain and pour over oranges, and garnish with pomegranate seeds.

Truc (Tip): This is an excellent accompaniment to pound or sponge cake and/or shortbread or sugar cookies, and even more delicious a la mode!
