Poached oranges are excellent by themselves—and great on a slice of pound cake as well.
1 to 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup honey
6 navel oranges
- Peel the oranges with a sharp knife. Be sure to cut through the pith so that the orange is completely peeled.
- Place the oranges in a saucepan with the sugar, honey and 1/3 cup of water. Cover, bring to a boil, and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Remove the oranges to a serving dish.
- Cook the syrup down to 1/3 cup, and pour the syrup over the oranges. When cool, sprinkle the oranges with 1 or 2 tablespoons of orange liqueur.
Makes 6 servings.
