I adapted this recipe from one I found in a newspaper. The tangy combination of citrus fruits is welcome as a light dessert after a big meal of as a refreshing addition to a brunch. Friends and family rave about it. —Geri Barr of Calgary, Alberta

Ingredients

  • 3 large navel oranges
  • 1 medium red grapefruit
  • 1 medium white grapefruit
  • 1 small lemon
  • 1 small lime
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted

Directions

Grate enough peel from the oranges, grapefruit, lemon and lime to measure 1 tablespoon of mixed citrus peel; set peel aside. To section citrus fruit, cut a thin slice off the bottom and top of the oranges, grapefruit, lemon and lime. Place each fruit cut side down on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, remove peel and white pith. Holding fruit over a bowl, slice between the membrane of each section and the fruit until the knife reaches the center; remove sections and place in a glass bowl. Set 1/2 cup juice aside.
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and reserved peel and juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes. Cool; stir in extract. Pour over fruit. Refrigerate overnight. Just before serving, sprinkle with almonds. Yield: 4 servings.
