A refreshing dessert showing off juicy blood oranges.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 150g shaved palm sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split
  • 1/4 cup lemongrass, very thinly sliced
  • 1 star anise
  • 5 blood oranges
  • Almond bread, to serve
  • Handful baby mint leaves

Method

Combine wine, sugar, vanilla bean, lemongrass and star anise in a small saucepan and add ¾ cup water. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves then bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until syrupy. Strain.
