This was a great way to serve fresh fruit. The cold, spicy syrup was lovely mixed with the orange-flower water. I really think this could grace a middle-eastern or North African (Morocco or Tunisia) just as well as Thai. It has that kind of flavour profile.
Delicious! I used grapefruit in this too. Loved the nice taste the star anise gave. Thanks! Made for ZWT 2013 by a member of Hot Stuff.
This is really delicious and slightly fancy, pretty with the mint spring on top. DH ate this! DD (toddler) liked the syrup but ate her share of oranges when I was slicing them up. I did not add the star anise on top for one thing the ones I used were broken but also since they are hard I didn't think it would be a good idea. (I know they are not meant to eat) I may make this again. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.
Yum! Beautiful & easy. My oranges were excellent - seedless & really juicy. This plus the star anise kept the syrup from being too sticky sweet. This was a hit tonight! I almost added some pineapple that was hanging around. Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers.
