Aperitif

Post: # 9275Post ina »

Whether we are getting round to having marmelade oranges as the fruit of the month or not - I thought I'd better post the recipe now, otherwise it'll be too late!

I picked this up in France; they made another version of it with green walnuts, but I can't remember any quantities - although they are a bit according to taste, anyway!

Here goes:

2 marmelade oranges - washed and sliced
100-200g raw sugar (or more if you like it sweet)
1 bottle of brandy
2 bottles of red wine

Leave for a few weeks, then drink like sherry. Or bottle first, if you don't want to drink it all at once... :drunken:

It is, if you like it slightly bitter!

The trick is to buy the wine and brandy only when you've already got the oranges in the pot - and pour them on immediately! That way temptation isn't quite so great... (Guess what: I've got the oranges, and Saturday I'll go out to buy the booze.)

You are not supposed to drink it by the bottle, Nev! Just from small, posh sherry glasses, to increase your appetite before a meal! (As if I needed that...)
