Total Time

Cook 10 mins

I found this recipe on the back of a SunMaid box. The times listed does not include 2 hours chilling time.


  1. Combine the sugar & water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the allspice, ginger, lemon juice, cinnamon sticks, & raisins. Simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes or until the syrup has thickened.
  3. Remove the cinnamon sticks then transfer syrup to a bowl, refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  4. Cut the peel & pith from the oranges. Slice into 1/2 inch rounds then cut into quarters. Place into a medium glass bowl. (Make sure to remove any seeds).
  5. Pour the cooled syrup & raisins over the oranges & gently stir to coat. Chill for 2 hours before serving.

Delicious! The photos do not do this dish justice as it comes out very pretty. Made as written using the two hour chill time and served with yogurt which made a great combo. But the little bit of sauce that was still warm and stuck to the bowl after dressing the oranges was the best. Think next time may try severing warm. We enjoyed the leftovers with toast for breakfast this morning. Thanks so much for the yummy post.

Oranges becoming my favorite dessert I had to try this. Today I tried it for breakfast and what a great way to start the day. The ginger is what I liked mostly in this. I ate it right away coz I saw in the end I was supposed to chill it, which I could imagine being even better. I halved the recipe.

This was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly! For myself and husband I added some orange liqueur. We had it on vanilla ice cream. I couldn't stop eating it. Thanks for posting :)
