And before you know it... It's October already and we are well into the Spring season. The year has gone by so quickly, it's almost unbelievable.
I may seem a little inactive on this space but have definitely still been experimenting in the kitchen a lot and taking photos regularly. Finding the time to share them has always been a struggle what with trying to balance work, exercise, family and family. I now have a bit of a backlog of great recipes that I've tried that I can't wait to share.
I made these candied orange segments because I had ingredients leftover from when I made my Salted Chocolate Tart with Spiced, Candied Orange.
I brought a container full of these babies to a dinner party and it wasn't long before they were gone. I've always been a fan of the combination of salty and sweet. These candied orange segments are a fun and easy snack to make and I definitely recommend people to try!
Hope to be back soon with another post. Until then, happy eating!
Candied Orange Segments with Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt
(an original recipe)
1 1/2 cup water
3 cups sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
5 star anise
80g dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
Sea salt flakes
1. Slice the oranges in half before slicing it again to 1/2 cm thick to form segments.
2. Bring the water, sugar, cinnamon sticks and star anise to a boil in a pot. Once boiling, add in the orange segments and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or until oranges become soft. Drain and set aside.
3. Place the dark chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave in 30second bursts or until chocolate completely melted.
4. Spread a small dollop of chocolate on each orange segment. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes.
