Ingredients

2 c
water
1 c
granulated sugar
3
whole star anise pods
2 tsp
orange blossom water
6 large
oranges
fresh mint sprigs (*not* dried mint)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine the water, sugar and star anise pods in a medium saucepan.
Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
2
Simmer the liquid until it is reduced to a generous 1 cup. This will take about 15 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in the orange blossom flower water. Remove star anise and set aside. Cover lid and chill until cold.
3
Use a sharp knife and cut off the orange peel and white pith.
Slice oranges crosswise into 1/3" rounds. Set the oranges slices on a platter and pour the syrup over them. Garnish with the fresh mint. (If desired, garnish the fruit with the star anise that was set aside).
