Citrus fruit salad with spiced syrup
Citrus fruit salad with spiced syrupSubscribe to Sainsbury's magazine
- 4 blood oranges
- 5 clementines
- 75g golden caster sugar
- 2 star anise
- 3 cardamom pods, bruised
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 25g pistachios, roughly chopped
Assemble several hours in advance; cover and chill. Sprinkle with the pistachios just before serving.
Pare the zest from one of the oranges and put in a small pan with the juice of one clementine, the sugar, spices and 100ml water. Stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved; increase the heat and boil rapidly for 5 minutes or until syrupy. Set aside to cool slightly before discarding the spices and orange zest.
With a serrated knife, remove the peel and pith from the clementines and oranges. Slice into thin rounds, adding any juices to the syrup. Serve on a platter, drizzled with the warm syrup and scattered with the pistachios.
For something a little more indulgent, simply serve with a scoop of coconut sorbet or frozen yogurt.
