Orange Slices in Lime Syrup

Source: Everyday Food, March/April 2003


  • 4 oranges
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine, or water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons anise seeds, (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest


  1. Using a sharp paring knife, peel oranges following the curve of the fruit, and remove as much bitter white pith as possible. Slice oranges into 1/2-inch-thick rounds; place in a large bowl.

  2. In a medium saucepan, bring 1 cup water, sugar, wine, and anise seeds, if using, to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, and cook until liquid reduces to 1/2 cup, about 25 minutes.

  3. Strain the syrup; stir in lime juice and zest. Pour over oranges.

  4. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
