- 4 Heritage Madagascan Vanilla Crème Brûlée
- In medium–heavy-based frypan, combine water and sugar and bring to boil.

- Reduce heat and simmer until syrup is thick and slices are tender but still intact, turning occasionally.
- Transfer orange slices to rack to cool. You might like to keep syrup for another use.
