Author:
Recipe type: Desserts
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 3/4 Cup water
  • 3/4 Cup red wine
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon stick, broken in small pieces
  • 1 small piece dried ginger root
  • 4 large oranges
  • 1 grated orange peel (optional)
  • half-and-half
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar and water and heat slowly, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add wine, cloves, cinnamon stick and ginger. Bring to a boil and boil until slightly thickened and syrupy. Cool 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, using a sharp knife, peel oranges, removing all bitter white pith. Cut oranges in 1/4"-thick slices and place in a shallow dish. Strain wine syrup over oranges. Cover and chill several hours or overnight, turning slices occasionally in syrup.
  3. Using wooden picks, secure orange slices together to form whole oranges and place in a serving dish. Pour wine syrup over oranges. Garnish with orange peel, if desired, and serve with half-and-half.
  4. NOTE: If desired, serve oranges in slices rather than as whole oranges.
