This is a simple and refreshing way of serving oranges for a spring or summer dessert.
Serves 4 - 6
Cut a slice off the top and bottom of each orange. Sit flat on a board, and using a sharp knife, cut off the peel, removing all the white pith - easier if you work from top to bottom and go around the orange.
Slice the oranges into circles and overlap on a wide shallow bowl. Sprinkle with orange flower water and strew with slivered fresh dates and slivered pistachio nuts. Chill. Just before serving sprinkle lighly with cinnamon and dust with a little icing sugar.
Tip: fresh lemon or lime juice combined with a little icing sugar can be substituted for the orange flower water. Slivered almonds can be substituted for the pistachios.
