DIRECTIONS

  • Using a zester, remove the rind of 2 oranges.
  • (if you don't have a zester, use a vegetable peeler, then cut into fine strips).
  • Place these in a saucepan and cover with cold water.
  • Bring to the boil, and cook until slightly softened.
  • Drain the peel, and return to the saucepan with the sugar, vanilla bean, and 125ml water.
  • Simmer very gently until the strips become transparent.
  • Peel all the oranges removing ALL the pith, then carefully segment.
  • Place the oranges in a bowl.
  • Remove the vanilla bean from the syrup (which will be rather thick).
  • Add the liqueur and brandy then stir and pour this over the orange pieces.
  • Cover and chill well.
  • This looks good served in glasses with an extra thick cream.
