Spoon over ice cream or cake for a deliciously simple treat. Leftover syrup can be used to sweeten beverages. The slices can also be used as a garnish or added to salads. (From the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving.)
Servings: 5 pintsPrep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes
10 whole cloves
5 cinnamon stick, 4 inches long, broken in half
3 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup water
9 navel oranges, sliced
3/4 cup Triple Sec
1/2 cup dry white wine
Tie cloves and cinnamon stick pieces in a square of cheesecloth to make a spice bag. In a large stainless steel saucepan, combine sugar, water, and spice bag. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat and boil gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove spice bag and discard. Add orange slices, Triple Sec, and wine. Over medium-low heat, slowly return to a boil, occasionally stirring gently so as not to damage orange slices. Remove from heat.
Using a slotted spoon, loosely pack hot orange slices into hot jars. Ladle syrup on top. Leave 1/2-inch headspace. BWB 15 minutes.
