Oriental oranges
Servings: 4

12 lg oranges
200 g sugar (7 oz)
3 tb grand Marnier or Cointreau
2 tb grenadine syrup

Peel the zest from the oranges in long strips, taking as little of
the pith as possible.

Cut the zest into very, very fine julienne strips.

Remove the pith in vertical strips to expose the flesh of the
oranges. Then, holding the oranges over a strainer with a bowl
beneath to catch all the juice, cut each segment away from the
membranes that divide one from another, and from the central core
of pith.

Squeeze all the discarded membranes to extract every drop of juice,
if any flesh remains on them, and add it to the already collected

Blanch the julienned zest in bouling water for 1 minute. Refresh
in cold water and drain in a sieve.

Put the sugar into a large, wide saucepan and cook over a moderate,
steady heat until the sugar melts and becomes a light golden color.

Add the collected orange juice and, stirring to mix well, cook
until the liquid has the consistency of a light syrup.

Add the julienned zest to the sysrup, as well as the liqueur and
the grenadine syrup. If a scum forms, remove it with a spoon as if
you were making jam. Bring it briefly to the boil.

Add the orange segments and shake the pan well so that they all
absorb the syrup. They should be hot, but they should not be allowed
to cook. Set the pan aside.

Add another drop of liqueur to the pan.


Arrange the segments on four plates to look like stars. Coat them
with the sysrup and decorate with the julienned zests.


Serve the oranges in a fruit dish, with a selection of some other
fruit desserts.
