Oranges in Orange Flower Water

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Bayhill

Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Morocco. From the "International Vegetarian" cookbook. I have not tried this recipe yet, but it sounds like a nice, light dessert. This dish can be served as either a dessert or a first-course salad. Orange flower water can be purchased at gourmet grocery stores or liquor stores. Note: prep time includes refrigeration time.

I love orange flower water so I had to try this! Made with just navel oranges and since I had an impatient toddler at my feet while I was preparing it, it wasn't done quite so pretty! After naptime though, she sure did gobble it up! Made for ZWT 9.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel oranges, removing white membrane completely with a knife; cut between membranes and lift out orange segments. Arrange each cut-up orange on a dessert plate so that segments resemble petals of a flower.
  2. Sprinkle each serving with 1/4 teaspoon of the orange water, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. To serve, uncover, sprinkle each serving with 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 teaspoon powdered sugar. Spoon 1/4 cup yogurt into the center.
