This traditional French recipe for Christmas Amber Apple (Orange studded with Cloves) is a festive and delicious treat that can be enjoyed as a snack or served as a dessert.
- 1 large orange
- Whole cloves
Begin by washing the orange thoroughly, then dry it completely. Make small punctures into the skin of the orange using a small, sharp knife. Push a whole clove into each puncture until the orange is completely covered with cloves.
In a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar has dissolved. Add the orange to the syrup and reduce the heat so that it is simmering gently. Simmer for 20 minutes, then remove from heat and allow to cool before serving.
