This is a delightful fruit dessert topping that I found on Tour Egypt. I think it would be marvelous on a simple bread pudding as well as the suggested ice cream or cake. Use your imagination :D

VERY tasty but i think it would be better if you supremed the oranges. the membrane was unappetizing. Made for NA/ME Tag November '12.
