Instructions Checklist
  • Grate 1 teaspoon zest from one of the oranges and set aside. Remove the rind and white pith from the oranges with a sharp knife and discard. Working over a medium bowl, cut the orange segments from their surrounding membranes, letting them drop into the bowl. Squeeze any remaining juice from the membranes into the bowl.

  • Holding back the orange segments with a spoon, drain the juice from the bowl into a small saucepan. Add the reserved orange zest, raisins and honey. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook until thickened and reduced, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in sherry. Let cool for 5 minutes.

  • Divide the reserved orange sections among 4 dessert bowls and spoon the sherry-raisin sauce on top.
