Rosemary-Honey Marinated Oranges

Kissed with sweet honey and fragrant rosemary, these oranges are incredible served with ice cream for dessert!

Ingredients:
1 (20-ounce) jar with a lid
4-6 small-medium sized Cara Cara oranges
2 tablespoons honey
Sprigs of fresh rosemary, washed and dried
Juice from 1 small Cara Cara orange

Method:
1. Peel the oranges by slicing about ½-inch off of each end. Then, standing them on one of their flat bases, use a paring knife to carefully cut just between the pith and flesh, moving the knife downwards and following the curve of the orange. Remove any excess pith, then cut the oranges horizontally into thin (approximately ¼-inch) round slices. Set aside.

2. Gently remove the leaves from one or two of the rosemary sprigs and set aside.

3. Add a few slices of the oranges into the 20-ounce jar, drizzle with about ½-teaspoon of the honey and a few of the rosemary leaves. Repeat this process until you’ve reached the top of the jar. If you’ve reached the top and still have a few orange slices left, gently press down of those already in the jar. Add a few rosemary sprigs to the jar, along the sides, between the sides of the oranges and the glass. Lastly, pour in the juice, then close the jar tightly and let the oranges marinate for at least 24 hours, and up to 5 days, in the refrigerator.
