  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST

Oranges and thyme are magical together in this simple and elegant dessert. If you want a completely clear syrup without the bits of thyme, put the leaves in a tea ball and remove it once the syrup is chilled.

  1. 1 1/2 cups dry white wine
  2. 1 1/2 cups water
  3. 3/4 cup sugar
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  5. 2 3-inch strips lemon zest
  6. 4 navel oranges
  1. In a medium stainless-steel saucepan, combine the wine, water, sugar, thyme, and lemon zest. Bring to a simmer over moderately high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, using a stainless-steel knife, peel the oranges down to the flesh, removing all of the white pith. Cut the oranges crosswise into 1/4-inch slices. Add the oranges to the simmering syrup. Remove from the heat and let sit 1 to 2 minutes. Gently pour the oranges and syrup into a glass or stainless-steel bowl. Let cool and then chill.
