I found a recipe similar to this in one of Claudia Roden's books and then gave it my own twist. This is a deliciously fragrant dessert, best served with a dollop of very thick cream or the best available icecream! Ras el Hanout is a Moroccan spice mix which I buy from Herbies in Sydney, or you can blend it yourself.


  1. Peel oranges, removing all pith. Slice thickly and arrange in shallow dish.
  2. Place orange juice, sugar, zest and Ras el Hanout in saucepan and bring to boil stirring to dissolve sugar.
  3. Boil for about 5-10 minutes to reduce and thicken syrup.
  4. Remove from heat, add rose water then cool.
  5. Pour syrup over orange slices.
  6. Serve cold.
