Winter is the perfect time to make this elegant dessert using fresh citrus orange slices. A simple syrup is first made using fresh thyme leaves. Then a variety of colorful orange citrus slices are steeped in the syrup to infuse the flavors together. Thyme leaves and oranges complement each other in flavor, but you could also use fresh mint in place of the thyme.
I used several types of citrus oranges, including a new variety called 'raspberry orange' that is deep crimson in color. This tinted the syrup a beautiful soft raspberry color. The clementines bring a different texture, alongside the standard navel orange. Topping the chilled orange slices with a sweetened whipped cream is the final sweet touch for this simple dessert.
