¼ cup plum wine or sherry, optional (60 ml)

2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed (30 ml)

Pinch of cinnamon

1 ½ teaspoons finely chopped ginger (7 ml)

1 piece star anise

6 mandarin oranges, segmented over a bowl, reserve all juices

1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted (5 ml)


1. In a wok or large sauté pan over medium heat, add the plum wine, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, star anise and any juice left over from segmenting the orange. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced slightly and starts to thicken, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add oranges and sauté. Cook to heat through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Don’t overcook the oranges or the segments will break down. Sprinkle with sesames and toss. Remove from heat. Serve as a topping or on its own.
