Fresh blood oranges are so sweet they almost create their own caramel under the broiler--a little brown sugar on top seals the deal. A hint of cardamom enhances their aroma. Once you scoop out and eat the caramelized sections, squeeze the remaining blood orange juice over the yogurt.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler (if you have a culinary blowtorch, you can use it instead). Line a baking sheet with foil.

  • Cut oranges in half crosswise. Using a sharp serrated or paring knife, trim the bottom of each half so it sits without rolling. Cut around each segment (as you would a grapefruit) and remove any seeds. Cut a cross in the center and run the knife around the edge of the fruit without cutting into the white pith. Arrange the orange halves, cut-side up, on the prepared pan.

  • Combine brown sugar and cardamom in a small bowl. Spread 1 teaspoon on top of each orange half. Broil until caramelized on top, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with yogurt.
