4 medium size oranges - the fresher the better.
1c raw sugar or coconut sugar
1/4c orange juice
4 green cardamom
1 vanilla pod
1 star anise
1 cinnamon stick
orange liqueur (optional)
Peel the oranges with a sharp knife taking off the white pith as much as possible.
In a pot mix sugar, water, orange juice, zest, green cardamom, vanilla pod, star anise and cinnamon stick, Bring it to the boil.
Reduce to a simmer and let the syrup become a thicker consistency. Take the pot off the heat and then add oranges, cover and keep the lid on for 30 minutes so that all the flavours get infused.
Cool and chill in the fridge.
You can use these for 4 or 5 days just making sure the oranges are kept submerged in the syrup.
