Happy New Year!
After all the eating and celebrating these past few weeks, I decided to make something light for dessert. I had some oranges left over from the Holidays, so I scoured my cookbooks and came up with this simple recipe from Eating Well.
Served up along side a 2009 Bartenura Moscato, it was the perfect foil for the sweet wine. Try them both and I think you'll agree.
4 Navel Oranges
2 T orange juice
2 T lemon juice
1 T sugar
1/4 t cinnamon
Sprig of mint (optional)
Cut away the rind and the white pith from the oranges. Slice the oranges in half, lengthwise, and then cut each half into 5-6 slices. Place them in a serving bowl.
Whisk together the next ingredients and pour over the orange slices.
Soooo easy and delicious.
Another serving suggestion would be to lay the slices on a platter and drizzle the mixture over the oranges. Place a sprig of mint in the middle of the platter.
