  5. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Tips, Notes, and VariationsEdit

  • The deep ruby color of the Cara Cara orange contrasts beautifully with the navel orange, but you can use two navel oranges if you prefer.


  • To serve, arrange oranges in pretty stemmed glassware and drizzle with any cooking juices. Top with a dollop of yogurt and a mint sprig.
