For those of you who can’t make it to my class, here is a recipe that I’ll be teaching. A very easy, refreshing and impressive dessert.
1/2 Bottle of red wine
1/2 C Sugar
1/2 Cinnamon stick
5 Oranges, supremed *
Combine wine, sugar and the cinnamon stick in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer until the wine becomes syrupy, about 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and cool. (The syrup can be made a week in advance)
Supreme the oranges-cut off the top and the bottom of the orange. Place the flat side of the fruit on the cutting board, and cut down the sides, following the curve of the fruit, and remove the skin. Hold the fruit in the palm of your hand and cut between the membranes to remove orange segments. Check out this video if you need a visual-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjOEGQ18F-A
Divide the fruit between 4 small bowls. Generously spoon the cooled syrup over the fruit and serve.
*A bay leaf, a few peppercorns or whole cloves can be substituted for the cinnamon stick.
