|1 tbsp||orange liqueur (Grand Marnier or Cointreau or home made)|
|For the rice:|
|6||short grain or pudding rice|
|candied orange peel|
Boil the rice in water until cooked (about 20 minutes or as per instructions). When cooked pour into a colander and rinse with cold water. Drain well and put aside to cool. In the meantime, make a syrup by boiling 3 ozs sugar with approx 1/3rd pint of water and allow to cool. When cold pour over the rice.
Peel the oranges with a sharp knife, removing the zest, but be sure to cut through the pith so that the orange is completely peeled. Slice the oranges horizontally to make pinwheels. Place the oranges in a saucepan with the honey and ½ cup of water. Cover, bring to a boil and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
Remove the oranges to a serving dish, reserving the syrup. When cool, sprinkle the oranges with 1 or 2 tablespoons of orange liqueur.
Cook the reserved syrup and zest with the cloves down to ½ cup, about 5 minutes. Allow to get cold.
When all is cold, spread the rice over the oranges and pour over the cold syrup. Decorate with some candied orange peel, and serve.
