sweet orangeSimple recipe that bursts with flavour. This recipe is from Seven Fires cookbook by Francis Mallmann. When oranges are in season this is definitely my favourite orange recipe.


  • 4 oranges
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plain thick Greek yoghurt


  1. Cut both ends off the oranges with a bread knife.  Remove the peel.  Cut the oranges crosswise in half and set aside.
  2. Sprinkle the rosemary over the oranges, and push some of the rosemary leaves into the oranges so they stick to it.  Sprinkle half the sugar on top.
  3. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Spread the remaining sugar on the cooking surface and when it begins to melt put the oranges cut side down on the sugar.  Do not move them for 3 to 4 minutes.  Adjust the heat so that the cut side burns nicely but does not smell acrid and the oranges are softened.

  • There will be lots of smoke in the house.  Open the windows and doors or cook on the BBQ.
