My new television obsession is the cooking show Chopped. I just discovered it a couple of weeks ago when it started coming on TV here. In case you are only just coming around to the site, I live in Spain and don't get all the regular shows that air on the big networks the other side of the pond. So, I am a little late to the party. Well, I have been glued to the show every evening for over two weeks now and it has to stop! I am sure they are going to run out of shows soon because it comes on every evening with two shows back to back. That is a lot of TV time.....oops. I think the show is hilarious and at times pretty intense. I don't know the honest to goodness reality of these shows. Like, did they already know what was in the basket, it is really only 30 minutes, and they must know what is in the pantry, right? Well, I have make myself believe all of these things otherwise it makes me feel somewhat inadequate. I mean could I manage to make a main course incorporating jelly beans, lamb testicles & a cinnamon bun? Ummmm, I would seriously need more than 30 minutes to make that work. In any case, I still love the show and good on all those chefs for stepping up to the most ridiculous culinary challenges.
All that brings me to these oranges. I saw one of the chefs drizzling honey over oranges as a component in a dessert. So, that is kind of what you see in front of you.
Citrus fruit is nice and light. These oranges would make a great addition to a brunch or breakfast table. They would even be something to think about to add to a summer dessert table. What is great about these oranges is the sweet and tangy flavour. The walnuts add a bit of a crunch, which is great for a texture change. This can be put together in no time am can easily make for a quick and light dessert.
These would be really good with yoghurt or cream on the top. I know because I tired, and it's pretty good.
