I’ve told you already: I’m not a fruit eater. Maybe apples, but nothing else. Not just to eat fruit. If you serve a dessert – oh yes, that’s different! That’s ok, dessert is ok! I’ve got the e&t (Jan 2012) in my hands and found recipes with blood oranges. And there was an Orangengrütze (which they served with mousse au chocolat) that had to be tried.
No, not with the chocolate mousse, this would take too much time for a quick during-the-week-dessert. I’ve got 6 blood oranges and could start to make a nice, sour-power dessert!
By the way: Le gros père says that this picture reminds him of chicken sweet and sour because of the colour of the sauce. But this would be something completely different!
For one little bowl of dessert (about 2-3 persons) you need:
6 blood oranges
2 tblsp sugar
2 tblsp corn starch
(I added the juice of one lemon and some lemon and orange zest)
Squeeze 3 oranges to get the juice. Cut the other oranges in nice pieces (and cut off the white stuff! It might be healthy, but it isn’t yummy!), squeeze the rest of them with your hands to get the juice.
In a small pot, caramelize the sugar. Add the juice when the sugar has got a light brown colour. Bring to a boil and let it simmer. Add some vanilla.
In a small cup, dilute the corn starch in some water, add it to the boiling juice and stir well. Bring to a boil once again. Put the orange pieces in a large bowl, pour the juice-mix over it and let it cool
Serve with cream (whipped or not whipped – your decision), if you wish.
