 Orange Slices in Orange Syrup Recipe-3689

Photo by: Joseph De Leo
Comments: 0


The orange zest and the orange-blossom water give a delicate fragrance to the syrup.

Yield: 4 servings


  • The zest of 2 oranges
  • 2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange-blossom water
  • 6 oranges


Grate the zest, and put it in a pan with the orange juice and sugar. Bring to the boil, and stir until the sugar has dissolved, then add the orange-blossom water.

Peel the oranges so that no pith remains, and cut them into thick slices. Put them in a serving bowl and pour the orange syrup on top.

Serve cold.
