This dish tastes best with ripe, sweet oranges and traditional Mavrodaphne. You can substitute the wine for any sweet red wine you can find, though.

Greek Style Oranges in Sweet Wine (Portokalia se Mavrodaphne) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 4 large oranges, zested and peeled
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Mavrodaphne, sweet red wine, or port
  • 1 whole clove

How to Prepare Oranges in Sweet Wine:

Cut  the oranges into sections, place in a bowl, and set aside. Add the sugar, wine, and clove to a saucepan and heat on low until the sugar dissolves. Once it does, remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool for ten minutes. Once it does, toss it into the bowl with the oranges, and let the mixture stand for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Stir the mixture and let it stand for another 30 minutes. Take the bowl out of the refrigerator about 15 minutes before serving.
