caramelized citrus dessert

Caramelized citrus is a quick and easy dessert that makes you forget it’s still winter!

And if there is any left over, it’s delicious for breakfast and tastes like being in Greece.

Here’s the recipe from the NYTimes:

Spoon a cup of full-fat greek yogurt onto a platter or large bowl.

Peel and slice thickly 3-4 sweet citrus fruits.

Place the fruit on top of the yogurt and put the mixture in the refrigerator.

Make a caramel using 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar and 1/2 cup water. Let the mixture come to a boil slowly without stirring, then lower the heat and let cook for 5-6 minutes.

I found the instructions for the caramel pretty vague…next time I make it I will skip the caramel step and just pour honey or maple syrup over the fruit!

Pour the caramel over the fruit & yogurt mixture. Eat right away or put it in the frig for an hour before serving.

Simple, colourful and delicious!
