Healthycooking's picture
  Mandarin oranges 10
  Icing sugar 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)
  Orange flower water 2 Teaspoon
  Chopped pistachio nuts 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)

1. Thinly pare a little of the rind from one mandarin and cut it into fine shreds for decoration. Squeeze the juice from two mandarins and set aside.
2. Peel the remaining fruit, removing as much of the white pith as possible. Arrange the peeled fruit whole in a wide dish.
3. Mix the mandarin juice, sugar and orange-flower water and pour it over the fruit. Cover the dish and chill for at least an hour.
4. Blanch the shreds of mandarin rind in boiling water for 30 seconds. Drain, leave to cool and then sprinkle them over the mandarins, with the pistachio nuts, to serve.
