These juicy spiced oranges go beautifully with the Citrus Ginger Cake or serve them on their own. This dessert improves with flavor so it is a good idea to make it a day ahead of time or the morning of your party. Serve chilled in a clear bowl so the colors show through.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
8   small oranges, preferably seedless
2 cups   water
5 tablespoons   sugar
1   vanilla bean
1   cinnamon stick
2   whole cloves
1   star anise
Spiced Orange Compote Recipe at Cooking.com
DIRECTIONS
Use a 5-hole zester to remove zest from oranges into long, thin, spindly strips (see Variation). Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the zest to the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a small strainer (reserve the cooking liquid). Rinse with cold water; separate and drain on a paper towel.


Stir sugar into the reserved cooking liquid; bring to a simmer. Cut vanilla bean in half lengthwise; scrape the seeds into the sugar water and add the pod along with cinnamon stick, cloves and star anise. Continue to simmer until the sauce reduces to 1/2 cup and thickens slightly, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the heat.


Meanwhile, slice off an end of each orange so they stand upright steadily. In careful sculpting slices, remove all the remaining peel and white pith from the oranges with a very sharp knife. Slice the peeled oranges into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Remove any extraneous pith or rind and any stray seeds.


Discard the vanilla pod and whole spices. Stir the zest into the sauce. Layer the orange slices in a serving bowl, spooning the sauce between layers to distribute the zest evenly throughout.

Variation: If you don’t have a 5-hole zester, use a vegetable peeler to remove long strips of the outer skin (zest) of the orange. Cut the zest into thin slivers.
