Compote of Oranges

  • 8 large, tart oranges
  • Juice of 4 oranges
  • Rind of 1 orange
  • 3/4 lb sugar, sifted
  • Rind of 1 orange
Peel the oranges and remove all the pulp. Divide them at every separation without breaking the dividing skin.

Squeeze the juice from 4 more oranges and put it in a preserving kettle with the sifted sugar and orange rind cut off in thin strips without a particle of pulp.

Lay the pieces of orange in the syrup and boil them for about 6 minutes (be patient, you rascal). Take them out and drain on a sieve.

Boil the syrup until it begins to thicken.

Put the oranges in a deep dish and pour the syrup over them. This is for filling a vol-au-vent.
