Sunday Dessert

So, when I was liaising with our friends about the leg of lamb we were taking over, they said "We haven't got anything for pudding". And I realised that I had some oranges in the fridge, there was sugar in the sugar jar, and I had some double cream in the freezer. So I made a classic Caramel Oranges. I tweaked it a bit by adding a little rosewater to the oranges and infusing the caramel with cinnamon.

It was just the thing after the roast meat.

we had fresh peaches macerated in marsala yesterday.

I must remember the oranges for winter fruit!

Thanks Heather!

Mother - it isn't quite as good as the old whisky oranges, but it is a good winter dessert!

Ooh! That does sound good!

Heather said...

Ohhh...I could eat that for breakfast! Or on flan. Or a piece of chocolate cake.

You've been doing such lovely things with oranges lately.

My captcha is femake. Sounds/looks like femcake.

Your meal on Sunday looks wonderful! The oranges are gorgeous and simple. I've been putting oranges of all kinds in salads lately. Winter tomatoes are so dismal I switch to fruit for my winter salads.

And I envy you being able to buy big hunks of meat like that.

BTW - you made me laugh out loud at your UK translation of my chicken bog! It totally cracked me up.

That looks amazing, A good way to brighten up the table!

Foodycat said...

Natashya - thanks!

Heather - I find oranges very cheering in winter! They are under-rated.

Laurie - the chicken bog made me laugh too!

Joie - it's good with yoghurt instead of cream too.

Sam - thanks!
