RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

DESSERT

SPICY ORANGE SUNDAE, American

Ingredients
  • 3 medium oranges
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • About 1 ½ pints vanilla ice cream
Preparation Instructions

Halve oranges, making zigzag edges. Cut around orange pulp with grapefruit knife. Use a spoon to remove any remain pulp from the scooped-out shells; rinse them out, dry, and put them in the freezing compartment of your refrigerator. Meanwhile, remove the seeds and fibrous material from the orange pulp. Put the remaining pulp in a saucepan with a mixture of sugar, cornstarch, ginger, and cinnamon; bring to a boil. Add raisins and boil gently for about 12 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Chill before serving.

Remove the orange shells from freezer and fill each with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Cover with foil or plastic wrap and return to freezer until serving time. To serve, put each filled orange in a small dish and pass the spicy syrup in a serving dish or pitcher. Makes 6 sundaes.
