Makes 10 small servings
These oranges are poached in a sweet syrup that is flavored with rosemary and vanilla.

  • Segments of 5 peeled oranges
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large sprigs rosemary
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook all the ingredients except the vanilla and whipped cream, stirring, for a few minutes or until the syrup thickens slightly. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Let the mixture cool slightly.
  2. With a slotted spoon, lift the orange segments from the syrup and serve warm or cold, topped with whipped cream.
