Oranges in caramel

Oranges in caramel – Serves 4
Slices of orange soaked in caramel sauce.

2 large oranges
100g sugar
100ml water


  1. Cut off the orange peel with a sharp knife and slice the flesh into thin rounds and put in a dish along with the juice.
  2. To make the caramel, heat the sugar and water in a large saucepan and swirl around to dissolve the sugar. Bring to the boil without stirring and let the syrup become a dark gold colour.
  3. Add the oranges to the pan and stir very quickly to absorb the caramel. If you take too long the caramel will stick to the pan. Tip the oranges onto a dish and leave to cool.
  4. Do not touch or taste the caramel – it reaches a very high temperature!
