  • 3 blood oranges
  • 3 oranges
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp orange blossom water
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh mint


  • Wash your citrus fruit and then use a sharp knife to remove the peel and the white pith from your oranges and and blood oranges.
  • Slice your citrus fruit into rounds which are each approximately 1 centimeter thick.  Remove any seeds.
  • Begin to place your citrus rounds on your serving platter, alternating between the blood oranges and the regular oranges.
  • After every layer, sprinkle with a little bit of the cinnamon, some pomegranate seeds, and some of the orange blossom water.
  • Repeat until you have used up all of the orange slices.  The number of layers will depend upon how large your serving plate is.  Sprinkle the chopped mint on top of your orange slices and pomegranate. 
  • Allow to sit at room temperature for approximately 20 - 30 minutes.
  • Enjoy!


This really is a recipe which is incredibly flexible.  If you will have a larger gathering, simply use more fruit and adjust the amount of cinnamon and orange blossom water accordingly.
If you prefer, you can use different types of citrus fruit.  We love the colour and flavour we get from the blood oranges however.
We tend to present this on a large platter, and therefore do not have several layers of fruit.  If you use a smaller platter, simply create more layers of fruit.
