Recipe For Orange Segments In Syrup

There must be something written across my forehead that says “please don’t listen to me”. Following on from my experience in changing my foundation, I went to a store to purchase some items for our guest rooms. I started off explaining to the sales lady that I was nearly finished the one room and needed a few things for it, as well as the bathroom. I started off asking for chocolate brown pillow cases. She showed me the white ones, then the cream ones, and then some mocha ones. Really, which one of these colours is chocolate brown? So, with that room still not complete I moved on to the next item, being a towelling robe. I am not sure why these are so difficult to find, but a company specialising in supplying guest houses should have these. But they don’t. So, on we go, to the request for glass shampoo and conditioner bottles. And she tells me that other guest houses only use plastic and shows me the plastic ones. Which I don’t want! What I want is stunning finishes in the bathroom, and plastic is not it! I want quality, and I don’t mind paying for it. To me, colour and the finished look is all that matters. And this is why I made orange syrup. I knew that orange segments would be the perfect finish to my mousse. The colour of bright orange against the chocolate brown was what I was aiming for and the sweetness of the syrup has been perfect not only with the mousse, but poured over chocolate ice cream. And in case you were wondering, I got the pillow cases at another shop – now for that elusive bath robe …

Orange Syrup
 
The most difficult aspect of this recipe is segmenting the oranges.
All Rights Reserved:
Ingredients
  • 2 oranges, segmented, reserve the peel
  • 500mls orange juice
  • 800g sugar - I used fructose
Method
  1. Place the orange segments into a bowl
  2. Place the juice and sugar into a large saucepan
  3. Bring to a boil over a medium temperature, stirring occasionally
  4. Line a chinois with muslin
  5. Place the peel into the chinois
  6. Once the syrup comes to a boil, pour it through the chinois
  7. Leave to cool until completely cold
  8. Place into a sterilized glass jar
My Notes
Segmenting oranges takes time and patience. Start by topping and tailing the oranges and then carefully following the shape of the fruit to remove the rest of the peel. Now carefully remove the segments, using a small paring knife.

  14. I love your stories Tandy! They’re so intriguing. But I do think listening is a lost art. No one really listens anymore. Anyhow, this syrup looks delightful, poured over chocolate ice cream, but I can think of so many other types of I.C. to use it on as well. So yummy.

  16. I love orange and chocolate together. So delicious. I just went to the wine and dine HK event this weekend and found this most amazing tangerine marmalade jam from a small producer in Sicily. Love this stuff so I know I would love your easy orange segments in syrup.
