  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Hands-on:25 Minutes
  • Total:25 Minutes


  • 4 large navel oranges
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 (1/4-inch-thick) fresh ginger slices, peeled
  • Gingersnaps


1. Peel and section oranges over a bowl, reserving juice; place orange sections on a serving plate.

2. Bring sugar, ginger, 3 Tbsp. water, and reserved juice to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; discard ginger.

3. Pour syrup over orange sections. Serve with gingersnaps.

Try This Twist! Gingered Clementines: Substitute 4 to 6 peeled and sliced clementines for oranges. Proceed with recipe as directed, beginning with Step 2 (without reserved juice).

Note: Clementines will not have juice to add to the syrup, but there will still be enough syrup at the end of Step 2 to coat fruit.
