300 ml water
4 eating (dessert) apples, peeled, quartered and cored
Put the sugar and water in a saucepan
and heat gently until the sugar has melted. Add the apple quarters and
poach for 5 minutes until translucent. Remove from the heat and leave
to cool in the syrup. Thinly pare the rind from two of the oranges.
Cut the rind into very thin strips. Boil in water for 3 minutes, then
drain, rinse with cold water and drain again. Cut all the pith and
rind from all the oranges and slice the fruit. Add to the syrup with
any juice. Leave until cold, then turn into a serving dish and chill.
Serve with the orange rind scattered over.
